A body is found in a rural town outside London, and the townsfolk easily identify the victim. Yet, who was she, really? No one knows her real name, occupation, or address, much less who would want to kill her. Avid mystery readers may guess right away, but Nigel Anthony holds the listener spellbound until the very end. His subtle vocalizations are especially effective when depicting the elderly female characters, and his vocal variations are compelling enough to carry the listener through the plot’s twists and turns. Classic in both content and delivery, this is an entertaining offering despite its predictability. B.L.W. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
