Critics place Caroline Graham among writers of classic mysteries like Agatha Christie. But this story is so dense with rich characterizations as to seem a new genre. Graham nests her murder plots in gentle social satire; this one pokes affectionate fun at the fringes of mysticism and New Age cults. But her characters are not stereotypes; each flawed and foolish one finds a different way to tug at the reader's heartstrings. Hugh Ross's performance adds luster to an already sparkling book. His narration sounds delightfully spontaneous, and his mildly exaggerated vocal characterizations (including a bravura turn as the Valkyric cello-playing priestess) perfectly match the author's style. Wonderfully written, wonderfully read! S.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
