Lee Adams gives a serviceable narration of Henry's latest Alaska Mystery, featuring sled- dog driver Jessie Arnold, her state trooper boyfriend, Alex, and her clever friend, Maxie. It all starts when Jessie's sled runs over a body, which turns out to be that of a local young man who's been shot. Identifying his killer takes some time, surveillance, interviews, conjecture, and a high-action climax. Unfortunately, these are all delivered at the same pace. Adams's voice is clear and pleasant, and she does put some juice into conversations--but no real emotion. This makes for pleasant, if unexciting, listening. Some questions are left unanswered--no doubt for the next installment of this popular series. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
