THE DISTANT ECHO Karen Pirie, Book 1

by | Read by Tom Cotcher

Mystery & Suspense • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Actor and Glasgow native Tom Cotcher is the ideal narrator for this murder mystery set in 1978 in Scotland. It's been 25 years since four drunk lads stumbled upon Rosie Duff's body in the village cemetery. Instead of being revered as Good Samaritans, Gilly, Ziggy, Weird, and Mondo were the only suspects. As the anniversary of the murder arrives, police launch a cold case review, and two of the four friends die suspiciously. In a genuine Scottish accent, Cotcher emphasizes the rage and paranoia of characters on both sides of the law. Cotcher's strong performance captures listeners' attention in this intense introduction to the Karen Pirie series. Listeners will be eager to uncover who really murdered Rosie all those years ago.
