Like so many good mysteries, this audiobook creates a tangle of characters and conflicts and asks the listener to pull strings until it all unravels to reveal a solution. The story in GHOSTWALK involves historical fact--Isaac Newton's interest in alchemy--and adds complicated characters and modern-day intrigue. When Lydia Brooke is asked to ghostwrite the final chapters of a Cambridge University historian's book on Newton, she becomes involved in a conspiracy that involves the past and the present. Rosalyn Landor performs with terse precision. Her lovely British accent suits the setting of the novel, although a clearer distinction between characters' voices would help listeners trying to keep up with the brisk pace. This audiobook keeps one engaged until the last string is untied. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
