Linda Evans gives a respectable reading of this first Inspector John Sanders mystery (1986), which begins as a conventional serial killer police procedural. It becomes complicated when copycat murders and murder attempts begin, and Sanders, with the reluctant assistance of his friend Eleanor, has a number of different perpetrators to identify. The narrative point of view switches frequently in the novel, so while one naturally roots for the good guys, the listener does not develop a close attachment to any of the characters. This is also a challenge for the reader. As you might expect, Evans does well with the feminine characters?especially Eleanor and Amanda (a teenage victim). Evans adds flat vowels and introduces a husky undertone when a man is talking?but, unfortunately, none of the men sound very attractive. The plot and the narration are likely to appeal more to women than to men. An adequate recording that should be acquired in libraries where Sale is popular.?Juleigh Muirhead Clark, Colonial Williamsburg Fdn. Lib., VA
