Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

In Laura Powell's unusual novel, a serial murderer stalks a quiet village in Cornwall, and the lives of its inhabitants, particularly that of teenaged Betty, are forever changed. Narrator Katy Sobey has a delightful British accent and a delivery that ranges from clipped to languid as the characters and pace of the text demand. Her breathy musings capture the insecurity Betty feels as forbidden love and a vow of silence lead to secrets and a burden of guilt that darken the rest of her life. Sobey skillfully guides listeners through fifty-year time jumps and multiple character shifts as the the effects of those grisly crimes play out to an unexpected resolution. This story offers much to listeners looking for something more than a typical murder mystery. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
