Nothing makes a Southerner cringe like an overdone Southern accent. In MURDER CARRIES A TORCH, narrator Ruth Ann Phimister lays it on as thick as molasses on a frosty December morning. Luckily, Anne George's story of Patricia Anne and Mary Alice, two sleuthing sisters, draws the listener past initial winces. Cousin Pukey Lukey has lost his wife to a snake-handling preacher and needs their help. Eventually, through a mix of murder, missing persons, and mirth, the listener grows so downright accustomed to Phimister's characterizations that no other reader will do. Ruth Ann Phimister gives the story even more personality than it already has. P.H.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
