Sacred Evil

Heather Graham, read by Luke Daniels. Brilliance Audio, unabridged, eight CDs, 9.5 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4418-9637-7%E2%80%A8

In Graham's third book in the Krewe of Hunters series, a beautiful young woman is brutally killed in the style of Jack the Ripper, and New York City police detec- tive Jude Crosby quickly recruits a para- normal investigator to help her uncover the truth about the mysterious slaying. Narrating with a consistently flat tone, Luke Daniels delivers a lackluster perfor- mance that fails to capture the sense of ur- gency and menace that abounds in this chilling and dark tale of murder and ro- mance. He also fails to bring any flair to the voices he creates for Graham's well- developed characters. Listeners will be disappointed by Daniels's reading and their resultant inability to get lost in this first-rate thriller. A Mira paperback. (July)%E2%80%A8%E2%80%A8
