Narrator Michael Deehy rocks! His reading of this mystery is done in a clear British accent with careful attention to the author's directives. With his narration, each character's expressions are appropriately inflected to emphasize Crombie's dialogue. Deehy's depiction of vacationing Scotland Yard Super-intendent Duncan Kincaid underscores his cautious yet caring manner. His partner, the warmer, more excitable Sergeant Gemma James, balances the tone. Deehy applies distinctive characterizations to the cast of young and old who must help solve a string of murders lest they meet a similar fate. His superb reading doesn't miss a beat as Kincaid and James unravel the details of oddly intertwined timeshare owners to find a killer. J.J.B.
