Anthea Fraser has created an unusual sleuth in Rona Parish, an author who writes about local subjects. This quirky mystery progresses quite far before the murders occur and Rona must spring into action. Narrator Jacqueline Tong skillfully conveys British and Canadian accents and a wide range of emotions, including the bittersweet situation between Rona’s elderly parents, who've recently split up. As the suspense mounts, Rona befriends a troubled neighbor. Neither Rona nor the listener can anticipate what will happen next as Tong portrays a deranged mother who recounts her murder of her own child. As Fraser and Tong bring all the threads of the plot together, mystery buffs will enjoy another gem from BBC Audio. S.G.B.
