Ian Pembroke becomes the protector for his much-married, wealthy father, who lately has been menaced by some mysterious accidents. Ian's previous estrangement from his father and his large group of half-siblings and their greedy spouses both fuel the plot and generate mystery in this thriller. Reader Simon Prebble's soft, melodic voice enhances the likable personality of the narrator-hero, but other characters are differentiated only slightly. Unlike veteran Francis reader Tony Britton, who favors vocal versatility and drama, Prebble provides listeners with the familiarity and leisure of a good storyteller. Both methods emphasize different, legitimate aspects of the first-person Francis novels. G.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
