Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

The police are called out when the body of Connor Swann, son-in-law of an operatic conductor and his celebrated soprano wife, Dame Caroline Stowe, is found floating in a Thames River lock. However, Deborah Crombie's engaging English sleuths, Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma James, soon begin to wonder how Swann's murder might be connected to the death of Caroline Stowe's young son twenty years earlier. Crombie's popular series delights lovers of British detective stories, and narrator Christopher Kay clearly enjoys them too. His clear pacing and warm, distinctive voice enhance the telling, enticing the listener to curl up for a satisfying listen. The characters are well drawn vocally--his Kincaid is subtly upper crust, his James, distinctly less well born. One slight irritation is that most of his women sound too breathy. But that's it. This is a pleasure. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
