Judiciously using accents, Kate Forbes imbues Haines's fifth Mississippi Delta mystery with subtle Southern flavor. Her skillful vocal characterizations include a ghost, an evangelist, and a glamorous transgendered journalist. P.I. Sarah Booth Delaney and her best friend, Tinkie Richmond, try to help a beautiful mystical healer who has been accused of murdering her own baby. With no false steps and total consistency, Forbes produces a seamless reading that allows the listener to glide right into the story with a clear picture of which character is speaking at all times.
