In this involving and unusual Elizabeth George novel, Donada Peters offers her usual superb narration. In her last book, George killed off the wife of Inspector Thomas Lynley. In this novel, she explores how and why an engaging 12-year-old pulled the trigger. Not as much a mystery as a novel with social and psychological overtones, George succeeds in creating a tense story and a fascinating array of characters. Peters brings them all magnificently to life. These are the people of many colors who now typify London, and Peters never falters in painting believable audio portraits of street kids and aristocrats. In between the dialogue, her melodic voice and faultless timing add to the pleasure. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
