Donada Peters flawlessly handles this gothic tale of kidnapping and murder. This novel is divided between the domestic travails of Chief Inspector Wexford (who seems more tired than usual) and his investigation of the disappearance of two children and their babysitter in the middle of a flood. From rich aristocrat to pub-keeper, Donada Peters delivers each character with smoothness and believability. Her voice conveys all the emotions of the story as needed. M.D.H.
