Mystery & Suspense • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Kathleen Garrett narrates the second in this entertaining mystery series featuring Nonna Maria, a septuagenarian sleuth who is clever, straight talking, and feisty. On the Italian island of Ischia, which draws wealthy tourists, two crimes come to Nonna Maria's attention. A murder is discovered, and a hotel guest accuses a maid, Nonna Maria's goddaughter, of stealing a valuable necklace. Nonna Maria assists the police in the murder investigation while setting out to prove the tourist's claim of theft is a scam. Garrett excels at the tourist's histrionics, making her outrage wonderfully over-the-top. When Nonna Maria questions a local witch about the murdered woman, Garrett makes both women's suspicions chillingly clear. With her Italian-accented English sounding so real, Garrett makes this fun story even better. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
