"The devil killed my body. I cannot fight, I cannot find. I cannot free her. You must. You are the one. We speak to the dead." Immediately after hearing these words, uttered to her by an old Romanian woman bleeding to death in the street, detective Eve Dallas begins to notice that her latest case has come with a number of interesting side-effects: visions of the deceased, instant familiarity with rooms she's never seen before, and fluency in Russian. Likewise, there appears to be a force inside of her, a spirit other than her own, that won't let her rest until she's found Beata, the old woman's great-granddaughter, whose disappearance two months prior remains a mystery. Desperate to be free of her new "gifts", Eve pursues the facts until she discovers a link between Beata's disappearance and the disappearance of eight other young women, all of whom attended the same dance classes, none of whom were ever heard from again.

"Susan Ericksen gives a stunning performance of this novella with a paranormal twist. Eve Dallas, New York City's top homicide cop, has an old gypsy woman die in her arms. Suddenly Eve can speak fluently in several languages, including Russian; sports a feather tattoo; and sees visions of murders. Will this help or hurt her efforts to catch the gypsy's murderer? Whether portraying hunky Roarke, Eve's Irish billionaire husband; sassy sidekick Peabody; bouncy Mavis, lovely Dr. Mira; or any of the other characters in Robb's series, Ericksen gives each a distinct voice and manner. Ericksen is a master of her craft, and this is an audio delight. A.C.P. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
