Librarian Jacqueline Kirby is up to her fancy hat in bodies, suspects and clues at the Historical Romance Writers Conference. The premise of a librarian at a book conference is a great setup, and Peters plays it to the hilt. Delicious stereotypes abound as each author tries to outdo the others. The narrator splendidly delivers the banter and wordplay of these wordsmiths. Peters is a natural for audio because conversation is central to her work. Conlin wonderfully portrays the array of characters but is particularly adept with older voices (perfect since there are many characters from a more genteel time). The narrative is almost extraneous to the dialogue, with Conlin managing to convey that as well. S.G.B. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
