Trudy Harris brings an engaging personality to the character of Sam Falconer in the fourth of Victoria Blake's Falconer series. Returning to her hometown of Oxford to open a private investigation business, Sam finds herself caretaker to a neighbor's persnickety Chihuahua, on a quest to locate a missing shrunken head for the Pitt Rivers Museum, and knee-deep in murder. Harris makes Sam a quirky, appealing heroine with secrets and personal problems that threaten to derail her investigation. Harris’s pleasing, intelligent reading style brings out Sam’s self-deprecating wit and adds dimension to secondary characters. Overall, Harris's performance turns Blake's blend of high-action plot twists and psychological angst into an entertaining listening experience.
