Fourteen miles east of Peachtree, Alabama, a secret is hidden. The secret's name is Annabel Lee. She doesn't know why her enigmatic uncle has stowed her deep underground in a military-style bunker. He's left her with a few German words, a barely controlled guard dog, and a single command: "Don't open that door for anybody, you got it? Not even me." Miles away in Atlanta, private investigator Trudi Coffey is visited by a mysterious older man calling himself Dr. Smith. He's been trailing a man for a decade - a man she met through her ex-partner Samuel Hill - and the trail has led him to her office. The last thing Trudi wants to do is to contact Samuel. But it will take both of them to unravel this mystery - before it's too late.

"Narrator Romy Nordlinger's animated voice captures a variety of compelling characters in this unusual mystery, whose title alludes to Edgar Allan Poe's poem of the same name. Nordlinger's accomplished portrayals capture the story's main characters: a frightened 11-year old named Annabel Lee; her mysterious uncle, Truck; a Special Forces sniper called "Mute"; and private investigators Trudi Coffey and Samuel Hill. Giving the principals appropriate age and character traits, Nordlinger uses emphatic enunciation to create dramatic tension when Uncle Truck rushes the young girl to a military-style bunker deep underground, leaving a German shepherd that is trained to kill with her for protection. Nordlinger's ominous delivery of Uncle Truck's warning not to unlock the door for anyone-- even him--is chilling. While this Christian suspense story features forgiveness, it's far from a typical faith-based mystery. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
