One tends to approach this title timidly because of its subtitle. Should one have listened to the first two Enzo Files? No need. Simon Vance boldly introduces the listener to Enzo Macleod, a Scots forensic scientist who has already solved two of seven cold cases written about in a book by a Parisian journalist. In this third (and maybe his last—Macleod has been diagnosed with a terminal illness), Enzo searches for clues to solve the murder of a boy 16 years earlier. Vance uses his natural British voice in the narrative passages but delivers Enzo appropriately with a heavy Scots brogue, and the villain with a pure French accent. Thanks to Vance's well-rounded reading, the listener is motivated to immediately take in the earlier two titles. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2009]
