High school good girl Mary DiNuzio, now a successful businesswoman, is shocked when high school bad girl Trish comes looking for protection from her gangster boyfriend-and promptly disappears. With a six-city tour. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
Scottoline's latest thriller presents a successful businesswoman's journey to confront her past, and Rosenblat draws upon her theatrical experience to create a fun listening experience. With a variety of tones and dialects on her palette, Rosenblat creates a colorful cast of characters (with even a little singing thrown in). While her omnipresent narrator is somewhat overbearing at times, this is downplayed by her wonderful character creations. While not exactly the most thrilling or believable story, the brilliant Rosenblat grabs the spotlight and owns it from start to finish. The final disc offers a noteworthy interview with Scottoline. Simultaneous release with the Harper hardcover (Reviews, Nov. 3, 2007). (Feb.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
