by | Read by Julia Whelan, Kimberly M. Wetherell, Shiromi Arserio

Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Shiromi Arserio, Julia Whelan, and Kimberly Wetherell are the perfect trio to narrate this thriller about an Italian villa with a haunted past. Emily and Chess book a writing vacation at the villa and reignite their friendship in the process, but their competitive sides soon surface. The villa was the site of a grisly murder decades prior, which inspired a bestselling horror book. Is the luxurious residence fated to see more conflict? The narrators complement each other with Whelan representing the present day and Arserio voicing British Mari and her villa companions in 1974. Wetherell lends her steady voice to the articles about the mysterious setting. Whelan gives Chess a folksy Southern drawl. Arserio builds a sense of unease with longing sighs and intense shouts.
