Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Alex Kingston, Steven Pacey

Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

The third audiobook in the Malbry series is a mystery involving a missing boy and a body uncovered in a schoolyard. It is also an intense psychological suspense about a formerly traumatized child who becomes the first female head of an elite academy. Narrator Alex Kingston's evocative voice tells the disturbing life story of Headmistress Rebecca Buckfast. Listeners also hear the proper, pedantic utterances of Roy, the elderly Latin master, convincingly portrayed by Steven Pacey. Beautifully written and produced, the audiobook is worth the drawn-out plot. The voice of the monster, "Mr. Smallface," is creepy, and listeners may never look at a bathroom drain the same way again.
