Mystery & Suspense • 23.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Sometimes a narrator can make a good book even better, while other times he or she can salvage a not-so-good book. John Lee does both here. The story, set in the nineteenth century, shifts farther back in time occasionally as two men--a detective and a con man--seek the whereabouts of a young woman. Each has a different motive for finding her. Lee handles every voice with aplomb, including various English accents. Characters include a wise black woman, streetwise commoners, and members of the upper class. Lee is the main reason listeners will stick with this lengthy audiobook. Through his consistent, authentic-sounding voices, his entertaining narration carries the story. M.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
