Narrator Joe Barrett is a good choice for this solid mystery—the first in Winslow's Neal Carey series. Much of the action takes place in Britain, and Barrett juggles various UK accents while still delivering the right tone and temperament for the American protagonist and his adopted father. The plot involves a Boston Brahmin, a senator's missing daughter, Brit punks, rare books, and a few helpful lessons in stalking. ("Always watch the feet, not the face.") It's taken 13 years for this novel to find its way to audio, and there’s a bit of nostalgia—this thriller is cell phone and Internet free.
