The latest in Brett’s Fethering mysteries involves the discovery of a skeleton buried ninety years ago and a murder that occurs during the course of the novel. This quiet mystery features Carole Seddon and her neighbor, Jude, who have combined on other occasions to solve crimes. Geoffrey Howard's rendering is satisfactory, with small, almost undetectable, distinctions among the English characters' voices. The voice of the female American academic does not come across as authentic--at first sounding like that of a New York taxi driver and subsequently wavering between a more subtle New York accent and one that is indistinguishable from those of the English characters. Overall however, Howard narrates with clarity and pacing that suits the gentle nature of the writing. S.S.R. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
