Similarities to Daphne du Maurier's classic novel REBECCA are noticeable in this audiobook, and the suspense is capably delivered by narrator Lucy Scott. Lucy Entwhistle has just lost her father, and widowed businessman Everard Wemyss observes the young woman's hardship at the same time that he is trying to escape his own. The ensuing May-December romance unfolds discreetly, thanks to Scott's subtle delivery of irony and humor. Before listeners know it, Scott has led them into a story of mystery and unease, power and intimidation, and the audiobook becomes impossible to turn off. There are times when characters become a bit exaggerated, with voices nearing the edges of credibility, but the overall effect of Scott's performance is solid.
