Lonely, eccentric Carol Mossman collects stray dogs. In a blistering opening sequence sure to capture the listener, Carol is shot and killed in her trailer home, her 17 dogs, inside with her, left to die from the Arizona heat. During the murder investigation, Sheriff Joanna Brady uncovers a family's web of deception, two seemingly unrelated murders, a religious cult, and child abuse. A strange hesitation in narrator Stephanie Brush's reading takes some getting used to. Her voice is lively, however, and her reading offers fine insights into Joanna's strained relationship with her mother and her quandary between her work and motherhood. While some of Brush's characterizations sound forced, she does a creditable job with Jance's complex scenario. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
