The latest in the Anna Pigeon mystery series is read by Joyce Bean, who focuses on clarity, rather than expression. Although she offers a pleasant narration, the listener notices a tone of nervousness. Fortunately, Bean shines in her vocal characterizations, and Anna’s latest assignment at Yosemite National Park, where she is working undercover at the Ahwahnee Hotel, includes ample dialogue among a diverse cast of characters. From foul-mouthed campers to an alcoholic park ranger, Bean’s depictions sparkle with expression, driving forward the mystery of missing park employees. Most memorable is her vocalization of a feisty head waitress who has more than five-star luncheons on her mind. J.J.B. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
