Although I really enjoyed this story in the Mallory series, I much prefer Barbara Rosenblat as the narrator. Unfortunately, Laural Merlington just does not have the voice range to make all of the character believable without distraction. The story is good and answers some questions about the main character that we've all been waiting to find out. The story is definitely a good one, but I would not recommend this narrator for this book series.

Who was your favorite character and why?
Kathleen Mallory of course, though Charles came off pretty strong (and oblivious) at times.
Have you listened to any of Laural Merlington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I can't remember, but she is quite talented. Listening to some decent narrators I've forgotten that others possess talents unrivaled. The ability to transform the story into a moving picture. Laural Merlington is one of them.
Any additional comments?
If you’re familiar with the Detective Mallory serious then you’ll be able to follow along. I read a previous review warning that Mallory takes more a supportive character role in this book and it’s somewhat true. It seemed like she was more of a cameo than the protagonist. The book is about her and the loss of her mother. The revenge seemed so unrealistic, like everything was staged. In previous novels and books events role seamlessly to the point the reader believes that the occurrences couldn’t be anything, but natural. It was like Mallory showed up the lights went out, and she disappeared. If the part of the book was about Mallory you expected her to do something and then disappear.
I’m a Kathleen Mallory supporter because she has this superhero quality about her. She doesn’t take crap from anyone and is willing to back it up with action. She’s intelligent and a quick-thinker. Her critical thinking and reasoning abilities create suspense and intellect. She defends the weak, confused, and sometimes stupid. She always gets her target. This is the Kathleen Mallory I enjoy reading about.
