Mystery & Suspense • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners will be blown away by narrator Susan Bennett as they are transported to 1960s Baltimore in this fresh mystery. Bennett expertly transitions between Madeline Schwartz, Cleo Sherwood, and a wide range of supporting characters. Maddie, a pampered former housewife, has left her husband to chase a life of meaning. She’s working as a reporter when the body of Cleo, a young black woman, is found in a city park fountain. Maddie tries to tell Cleo's story and connect it to others who are dismissed, overlooked, and forgotten by society. Bennett creates an authentic identity for each character and sets a pace that pulls listeners in and holds on tight. The story is incredibly relevant as race, gender, violence, and socioeconomics are integral parts of understanding the characters and their motivations.
