The one thing Jasmine's killer did not count on was that Jasmine's neighbor was a detective from Scotland Yard. And he's having a hard time accepting the apparent suicide of his terminally ill friend. Finally uncovering the truth, he wonders if it would have better if he had left it all alone. Christopher Kay gives a sensitive narration of this mystery, which explores fundamental questions of personal responsibility, rights of the terminally ill, assisted suicide, and complexities of human relationships. Tone, cadence, and accents are tools Kay uses well to create a small but diverse collection of characters. His choices enhance the observations of class, privilege, and status that subtly flow through the assumptions and decisions that affect the investigation. His handling of Jasmine's diary entries helps to make her voice a real presence in the story. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
