Haddon's versatile voice carries us to the mysterious Hong Kong of the late 1800's. Although she employs subtleties of dialect and convincing accents, she allows histrionics to overshadow the characters. With rapid changes from a barely audible whisper to an excited pitch, she detracts from an otherwise compelling tale. B.L.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 98]
