Gretchen Gilman is now the nationally famous reporter "Gigi," but back during WWII Gretchen was just a teenager getting her start on a small-town Southern newspaper. She was busy writing up the ladies social club events when a big story erupted right next door. Her best friend's mother was murdered in her own living room, and the woman's jealous husband disappeared. The story is told in flashbacks from a later point in time after Gretchen receives a letter that has sent her back home for the first time in years. She relives that summer and may finally get the answer to the questions and guilt she still carries. Kate Reading's quick changes of voice and deft use of regional accents help make this mystery a lively listen. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
