Cornell Collins narrates a pulp-inspired romantic thriller set in post-WWI England. Will Darling is a retired soldier who has inherited a bookshop from his uncle. When he begins receiving threats, he realizes there is more afoot than the arcane prices of secondhand books. Collins ratchets up the tension as the story progresses from mildly mysterious happenings to dangerous goings-on; increasing suspense is reflected in his portrayals of Will and his paramour, Kim, in particular. Additionally, Collins excels at accents: Will still sounds like a country lad who went away to war; Kim and Phoebe are voiced as the bright, young things they are; and Will's friend Maisie has a charming Welsh lilt. The villains are all suitably vile. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
