The thrill of the chase runs deep in the blood of the Holmes family—mother, daughter Enola, and brothers Sherlock and Mycroft. As Enola embarks on her fourth adventure in Springer's mystery series—rescuing her young friend, Lady Cecily Allister, from an arranged marriage—her sleuthing is fraught with memories of her mother and worry about seeking, or avoiding, her brothers' assistance. Katherine Kellgren brings vitality and spunk to Enola. Kellgren is a forthright, no-nonsense narrator who paces the story with the urgency of Enola's mission. Kellgren’s agility with British voices enlivens the plethora of characters—from hackney driver to orphanage matron to upper-class relatives of the prospective bridegroom. Together Springer and Kellgren give listeners a compelling experience of Victorian England. A.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
