The job was six-hundred miles away from home, and that made it perfect. Certainly, Hank Hunnicutt had a reputation as a kook, surrounding himself with every self-proclaimed practitioner of the occult arts who came his way; however, for D. J. Abbott, an opportunity to spend some time on Hank's Arizona ranch was everything a young graduate student trying to establish herself in anthropology could hope for. It wasn't until Hank suffered an accident and then mysteriously disappeared that the guests at the ranch began not only eyeing D. J., but also each other with fear and suspicion. Only the persons responsible knew what was going on, and when D. J. got too close to uncovering the truth, she realized that some of the games being played by the people at the ranch had a deadly intent-and that she just might be the intended.

"D.J. Abbott needs to get away, and an unbelievably generous offer from Hank Hunnicutt to participate in a dig six hundred miles from home seems like the ideal solution. Grace Conlin is effective in her wry, self-deprecating portrayal of D.J. However, her occasional mispronunciation and oddly placed emphasis are disconcerting in an otherwise American English recording. Peters's fans will not be deterred, for the action is compelling and the characters are well developed. Others may find that the misplaced emphases detract from the overall performance. B.L.W.
