A 60-something ex-reporter goes to San Antonio to look for a friend's missing granddaughter. The girl turns up, but Henrie O. sticks around to solve two murders and a jewel theft centering on an exclusive Mexican art shop. Reading does well with all the Spanish words and capably brings out Henrie O.'s intelligence, tenacity and resourcefulness. (Actually, she's a bit of a busybody.) However, her voice doesn't sound old enough for a senior citizen. Ah, for Joan Hickson! Henrie O.'s adventures, all read by Reading for Books on Tape, take her to some of America's colorful locations. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
