In 1889 San Francisco, the feisty Sarah Woolson aspires to be an associate in a law firm. Her first client is a young widow accused of brutally murdering her husband. During Sarah’s investigation four more murders occur, and Sarah is the only one who believes they’re linked. While the writing isn’t in the highest tradition of the genre, the performance will not be surpassed. Anna Fields has a superb gift for creating character voices, both male and female. Her male voices are particularly outstanding; each is not only uniquely identifiable, but foreign accents (Scots and Chinese) are perfectly portrayed. Emotions are skillfully interpreted, whether highly charged or sympathetic. Many listeners might figure out who the villain is before the last chapter, but it won’t spoil the enjoyment of this beautifully performed book. S.S.R.
