Set in West Yorkshire and Cornwall, this story challenges Martha Grimes's major character, Superintendent Richard Jury, to find out the real reason that a perfectly sane and patient wife should murder her husband ten years after their only child has been kidnapped and presumably killed. The abridgment, written by Jill Ellyn Riley, provides a smooth narrative flow without any obvious gaps or lapses and with more than a few touches of characterization and byplay not always found in abridgments. Tim Curry's narration is consistent and expressive: he handles character voicing well but has some trouble with Yorkshire and Baltimore accents. T.T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 92]
