Carter's brisk, stylish writing grabs the listener's attention immediately, and narrator Bahni Turpin makes the words come alive. The story opens with a mystery--the discovery of a body in the roadside snow. Turpin's performance of the complex plot is at once thoughtful and energetic. She embraces a variety of voices, shifting between genders, accents, and ages with panache. The focus is a complicated but accessible collage of relationships within families, between races, and within communities. Julia Carlyle's character leads listeners through the mystery of the murdered man and explores issues of race and influence in a university town. This audiobook has a story to tell and a great narrator to tell it. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
