"As Bibi Blair embarks on a quest to find the titular Ashley Bell, she leads listeners on a wild ride that is deliciously disorienting and suspenseful. Suzy Jackson relates how events in Bibi's past become important to her quest and her future. This supernatural medical mystery involves brain cancer, a coma, and more. Jackson narrates with verve and also conveys a folksy quality in Bibi's dialogue with friends, her parents, and her boyfriend, a Navy SEAL. With dramatic flair, Jackson collapses the distance between the protagonist and listeners. Her deliberate pacing and Koontz's inventiveness as a storyteller are a terrific pairing.
