LIE DETECTIVES The Deadly Dare Mysteries, Book Three

by | Read by Paul Chequer

Children Ages 10+ • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

A curious prologue reveals a plot for murder. Then the story begins, and inventor Darius Marriot keels over while entertaining a school full of children. Young Bullet, a wannabe inventor and mate of the Deadly Dare mystery solvers, is profoundly affected and spills out a truth: Darius Marriot is his father. Paul Chequer's narration gives adults an unflattering presentation--Marriot suffers from braggadocio, his wife is shrill, and the culprits sound sneaky. On the other hand, the young investigators, Theo, Ricky, Angela, and Bullet, have forceful, energetic voices that drive the story. Chequer lets worry creep into their dialogue in a way that doesn't diminish their vigor but lets listeners feel the danger they face. S.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
