Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

Michael Deehy's solemn voice provides a courtly eloquence to Deborah Crombie's moody police procedural. When his neighbor, Jasmine Dent, dies, Superintendent Duncan Kinkaid is not surprised since Jasmine had terminal cancer. However, when her journals are found, Duncan and his partner, Sergeant Gemma James, suspect her death was not from natural causes. As they go through the journals, Deehy's narration makes every new discovery about Jasmine's personal life fascinating. His performance gives multiple dimensions to each of the possible suspects, including Jasmine's failure of a brother, Theo; her day nurse, Felicity; her friend, Margaret; and Margaret's money-hungry boyfriend. Deehy allows Crombie's subtle clues to reveal themselves in ordinary, completely human ways. He is nicely understated as Duncan and Gemma's connection deepens and the mystery slowly unfolds.
