Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nigel Anthony

Mystery & Suspense • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Ruth Rendell’s brand of psychological suspense is much imitated, but her master’s touch is clearly evident. Nigel Anthony, also clearly a master of the narrative arts, takes listeners through Inspector Wexford’s winding investigation of the disappearance of two teenaged children and their overnight sitter. Moody, introspective, and intellectual, Wexford is wonderfully played by Anthony, who amplifies, not just the Chief Inspector, but the other policemen, family members, and townsfolk. Anthony spins out the tale with ease and assurance. He’s in touch with the story’s pace, knowing exactly when to stretch it out and when to ratchet up the suspense. Listeners can savor Rendell’s newest work and enjoy the listening hours. R.F.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 04]
