Dr. Fidelis Berlin, a Welsh psychiatrist and author living in London, inherits a modest house and a writing desk from a total stranger named Lesley Cameron. Odd. Odder still is that Cameron seems to have been murdered. In the desk she has left Fidelis a manuscript describing a past wrong that must be corrected. Or must it? Nothing in this intriguing and well-written mystery is quite as it appears. But one thing is certain: Penelope Freeman is a terrific narrator. Her warm, precisely enunciated voice is so inviting that it keeps you listening even when your ears are tired. And her characterizations are spot on--her voicing of Fidelis combines a musical Welsh lilt with the measured tones of a woman used to controlling her life. The character of Lesley Cameron, who reads the manuscript, is revealingly sly. An involving listen. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
