Rebekah Rimington and Fiona Hardingham portray two orphans who can communicate with ghosts as they make their way through crime-ridden, haunted Razorhurst. The third narrator, David Ligudzinski, somberly provides backstories that delve into Razorhurst's history and reveal characters' motivations. While the story frequently switches point of view and time periods, the multiple narrators alleviate any confusion. The use of Australian voices to narrate a story set in Sydney adds authenticity and grounds the piece in Larbalestier's style. A slightly faster pace could have heightened the atmosphere of the suspenseful plot, but, overall, this is an intriguing listen. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2015]
