Simon Prebble does all he can with this tedious police procedural, in which Inspector Adam Dalgliesh and associates deal with the murder of a barrister in the heart of the British legal system. A secondary plot about a different murderer altogether complicates the scene, as do many possible perpetrators. Simon Prebble brings his remarkable smoothness and skill in the appropriate upper- and lower-class British accents to a wide group of characters. He reads thoughtfully in a low, cultured voice that exudes Dalgliesh's flatness in particular. D.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
