If it’s true that readers like nothing more than to be surprised, then they’re in store for many pleasures in this Elkins thriller, which concerns shrouded events that occurred in a small town in occupied France. In 1963, the father of Peter Simon’s French-born wife--a man she claims died in the war--shows up on the couple’s New York doorstep. Soon after, the father is murdered, and Peter’s wife goes missing. Finding her involves a trip to Europe and investigation into a harrowing past. For lucky listeners, the story entails unexpected twists on every cassette. Christopher Lane sounds like a regular guy--one who is thoroughly pushed, traumatized, and tested. The fun--and the surprises--don’t let up until deep into the final tape.
