Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

California photographer China River accompanies her brother on a business trip to Guernsey Island in the English Channel and winds up in jail, accused of the murder of her brother's wealthy business acquaintance, Guy Brouard. To her rescue are her dear friend, Deborah St. James, and her forensic scientist husband, Simon. British narrator Simon Jones performs with ease and diversity, tackling dialects, personalities, and motives with real acting ability. The murderer could be the young boy taken under Brouard's wing or Brouard's protective sister or his greedy ex-wife or his worthless son. Jones maintains the suspense while entertaining the listener to ensure a satisfying experience. B.J.P. 2004 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
