After the brutal murder of an art gallery owner, the beautiful and mysterious artist Holly Troy seems to be the key to finding out what really happened on the night of the homicide. Unfortunately, Holly also suffers from dissociative identity disorder, and many of her personalities come straight from classical mythology, from the powerful Cronos and Pandora to the fickle Fates. Holly has no idea who she was the night of the crime - whether she witnessed anything, or even if she was the killer herself. Homicide detective Orson Cheever must unravel the complex labyrinth of Holly’s mind before he can find the truth, but he soon finds himself drawn into his own past when Holly begins exhibiting the personality of a five-year-old girl. Desperate to solve the crime and escape his own long-buried grief, Cheever plunges ahead, treading the line between investigator and protector in this suspenseful psychological thriller.

Okay, I admit to not fully believing in multiple personalities as described in this book. So right away it loses 2 stars for me. However, the characters are so well written and developed I had no problem finishing the book.
Sometimes when I am frustrated with a book it is because I really liked a lot of it. This has a fascinating premise and a great conclusion, but I felt cheated getting there.
I loved the reader heis one talented guy.
Audible books keep me from having full blown conversations with my dogs during the day!
This story regarding a suspect with multiple personality disorder was very believable, intelligent, and interesting. I was very impressed with the author's abiity to make the reader really care about all of the characters. This was my second book by this author, and both were great.
The reader did a fantastic job at being able to portray all of the characters - even when many were in the same scene at the same time. Many narrators are not successful with voices opposit to their sex. This narrator performed women without sounding so odd that it was distracting.
