As usual, amateur sleuth Fran Varady is broke, largely unemployed, and teetering on the edge of homelessness. As usual, everyone except her best friend, Ganesh, is skeptical about her abilities--this time to discover who killed her former housemate, Terry, found hanging from the ceiling. And as usual in Ann Granger's enjoyable British mystery series, Fran triumphs. Kim Hicks has read several of the Fran Varady series, to excellent reviews. This audiobook is not an exception. Hicks IS Fran Varady in the same way that Alec Guiness IS George Smiley. She also delivers a well-paced reading in which the other characters come alive. A convincing, entertaining performance.
