Fyfield's title is perfect for this mystery of many voices, all speculating about the same story from many divergent perspectives. The listener has no idea who (if anyone) is telling the truth. Jennings distinctly mixes ages, sexes, and cultures for each voice, helping the listener to keep track of the convoluted story. Twenty years ago, Henry met and left Francesca; now he wants to turn back the clock, but it seems too late since she's in jail for murder. Francesca's viewpoint is revealed subtly in her letters, which are easy to overlook, causing one to miss a vital clue. This excellent and very sad narrative is enhanced by audio. An ideal choice for mystery fans who revel in complex plots. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
