A cute and salty mystery on the Maine coast is voiced by Lindsay Ellison in some authentic Downeast accents. The story, reminiscent of an episode of "Murder, She Wrote," is chock-full of quirky, crusty characters with their own opaque drives and needs. Reader Ellison soldiers on through some of the more hackneyed and predictable chapters, clinging to what's left to an actor when the script begins to falter--strong character choices, decisive delivery, and an air of knowing. For listeners who love to be carried away to an imaginary Maine village and its imaginary intrigues, this title will provide an almost tangible tart and briny flavor.
