Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Vera Chok

Fiction • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Vera Chok delightfully narrates this ambitious debut fiction about a woman haunted by dreams of a mysterious creature. With her charming voice, Chok becomes Jia Jia, whose husband, Cheng Hang, is found dead at their lush Beijing apartment; beside him is his sketch of a creature with the body of a fish and the head of a man. The image propels Jia Jia to find out more about the creature to better understand her late husband, and in doing so, she unearths buried family secrets. Chok's smooth narration will have listeners hooked on the drama and intrigue surrounding Cheng Hang's sketch. While the story dead-ends, this audiobook is a must-listen for those who enjoy slow-moving mysteries. A.C.
