Will Marsden and his family solve a murder while listening to his uncle tell the story of Richard III and the Princes in the Tower. Hardiman individualizes the cast by giving each person a unique voice and personality. His British accent readily slips into Scottish pronunciations for several characters. Hardiman gives Great Uncle George a gruff, grizzly voice; Will's voice reflects the eagerness of youth. Meg, the saucy housemaid, conceals her intelligence and caring behind a flippant attitude. Hardiman's performance enlivens the historical background, well-described characters and intriguing plots. P.A.J. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
