There are an astonishing number of murders per capita in the seacoast city of Port Frederick, Massachusetts. Fortunately, there's also Jenny Cain, foundation director and amateur sleuth, to solve them. The latest in this series concerns a commercial waterfront development and those whose lives are affected by it. Dialect is much easier to listen to than read, and Shea provides a range--Yankee, Southern and European--which runs counterpoint to her own first-person inflectionless narrative. A committee meeting shows her at her best. Plenty of red herrings swim in this mystery, but Shea as Jenny capably hooks the real predator. J.B.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
