THE INHERITANCE

by | Read by Simon Tolkien

Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Simon Tolkien reads his second novel in the upper-crust tones one might expect of the grandson of the author of THE LORD OF THE RINGS. In his prologue, the author explains that his classic country-house murder mystery is set in 1959, before capital punishment was abolished in England. Tolkien introduces, but wisely does not maintain, vocal inflections as he characterizes a pompous prosecutor, an impatient judge, and a raspy throat-cancer patient. He’s more consistent with the accents of French witnesses of a wartime atrocity. The listener may need some time to get used to the peculiarly long pauses before dialogue tags, but early breath control issues are soon resolved.
