Mystery & Suspense • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Rosalyn Landor's narration helps build believable characters and an atmosphere full of tension. Listeners join troubled Simon Brandon, a recently enlisted, underage soldier in 1900. Despite the discovery of his secret, he is sent to India under the watchful eye of Colonel Crawford. There he grows increasingly close to the Colonel's family. Later, when he finds himself accused of murder, the Crawford family seeks to prove his innocence. Landor moves with ease between the clipped, confident tones of the upper-class Brits and Simon's reserved tone and working-class accent. Landor also captures the members of the Indian princely house. The result is an atmospheric and enjoyable listen. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
