Young Luke Latimer reluctantly becomes involved in the search for a diary that will prove his late, learned, and wealthy grandfather was a serial wife-killer. Other family members will go to any lengths--including murder--to avoid scandal. The action takes place in London and Edinburgh, necessitating a variety of English and Scots accents. Garard Green handles these with alacrity and is also adept at slowing his narrative just a hair when something dramatic is about to happen. His obviously mature voice gives an objectivity to what is essentially Luke's story though it's told in the third person. All in all, it's hard to fault this full-length reading of one of Ferrars’s more than seventy books. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
