Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

This devilish mystery is set in southeast Ireland in 1957. British narrator John Lee does a masterful job with Irish accents. He provides pitch-perfect renditions of the locals and brings to life the Protestant gentry's upper-crust speech, especially that of Detective Inspector Strafford. But Lee's most memorable and affecting portrayals are those of the local police, the innkeeper, his wife, and their endearing housemaid--all performed with authentic brogues. The plot centers on the killing of a priest who is a serial child molester. John Banville has written a nuanced whodunit with clues as complex as the pattern in a tapestry.
