The ins and outs of Charles Paris's snooping on and off stage are a joy to listen to when Simon Prebble is the narrator. Prebble is a magnificent Charles, both sober and drunk, morose and elated. He is the actor that Charles Paris wishes he were but, sadly, is not. In this mystery, a poisoning takes place among the players of an avant-garde production of TWELFTH NIGHT, and amateur sleuth Paris is not only hot on the trail, but also one of the potential victims. Prebble is masterful with all the characters, from Indian sitar player to egomaniacal Romanian director. Listeners will find it hard to laugh out loud at the subtle nuances of accent while holding their breath from the suspense. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
