From AudioFile:

What if there were a grisly double murder in your family's past? What if that unsolved murder were a dark family secret uncovered by furtive sleuthing? Carol Jordan Stewart offers a fast-paced narration of 12-year-old Amy's story as she struggles with a concealed past and a terrifying present. Stewart's unimpassioned delivery of Amy's Aunt Claire is perfectly suited to the emotionally controlled woman who has hidden the pain of her parents' murders for more than thirty years. And Stewart's superb reading of Amy's developmentally delayed sister, Luanne, employs the cadences and innocence befitting such a character. Pacing is used effectively during scenes of high tension while bars of ominous music introduce each tape and set the mood for a mystery kids will thrill to. T.B. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
