Michael Deehy convincingly renders a wide range of Scottish and English accents in his superb reading of NOW MAY YOU WEEP, a recent installment in Deborah Crombie's popular series of English mysteries featuring Scotland Yard detectives and lovers Duncan Kinkaid and Gemma James. This time, Duncan and Gemma take a busman's holiday when the host of Gemma's bed-and-breakfast in Glenlivet Valley, Scotland, is murdered. Old romances and festering resentments, both historic and current, provide the context for an entertaining whodunit. In addition to accents, Deehy manages to make clear the frequent shifts in time and place without disturbing the flow of the engaging narration. This is a very good performance of a mystery so satisfying it will have you curled up for the entire weekend. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
