Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1986

The family of Vera Hillyard, one of the few British women executed for murder, deal with the horrible event in various ways. Her niece recounts the circumstances for a journalist who is preparing a novel about Vera. The psychological effects of the past crime are intricately detailed by Rendell.Sophie Ward does an excellent job spinning the tale and edging the listener closer and closer to its gripping conclusion. Her British accent and buoyant voice are excellent for the niece's first-person narrative and the female characters. Her portrayal of the complex family dynamics is compelling.
