Listeners may be familiar with Peter Abrahams as an Edgar Award nominee for his adult thrillers. In his first novel for the younger set, he succeeds in creating a tantalizing mystery. Mandy Siegfried perfectly captures teenaged Ingrid’s doubt, snideness, and bravado, grabbing the listener’s interest right away. The upbeat rock music introducing each disc doesn’t hurt either. As the title suggests, Ingrid feels a lot like Alice down the rabbit hole when she realizes she was the last person to see a local actress alive. Not only does Ingrid find herself in the theater playing Alice in Alice in Wonderland, but her new boyfriend’s father, the sheriff, is following up clues that are pointing way too close to her.
