Narrator Simon Prebble has the perfect voice for this atmospheric mystery. The story is set just after WWI in the medieval village of Wolf Pit, the home of the victim, Stephen Wentworth. Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge goes for a spontaneous drive the night after his sister's wedding and comes upon the murder. Prebble's wry tone and other vocal talents capture every nuance of Rutledge's successes and failures. Two more murders quickly follow, frightening the people in the area. Prebble's accessible British accent and changes in pacing quickly pull listeners into this cleverly plotted mystery. Rutledge's well-crafted fictional world, as always, is rich in sensory stimulation and interesting characters. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
