Inspector Faro investigates a murder at the request of the dying sister of the killer convicted of the crime. His probing takes him behind smooth exteriors that conceal deceit, greed and passion. Robert Powell provides a genuine Scots accent and presents strong and rich characters. The characters are easy to recognize, and their voices work well together. His sotto voce delivery for female characters in some cases belies their strength but serves to distinguish them and fits the time period of the story. Powell maintains an even, steady pace, and the story never lags. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
