Mystery & Suspense • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

In 1932, police inspector John Madden has thankfully retired to the English countryside. However, his village's tranquility is shattered when a young woman is sadistically murdered. Narrator Christopher Kay proves to be an outstanding storyteller, whether presenting the lush text or the accents of several European nationalities. Kay also portrays the quiet and subtle buildup of danger regarding both the murderer and the upcoming war. A very different time is conveyed through the mores, class differences, and moving relationship between Dr. Madden (John's wife) and a wandering band of tramps. This excellent mystery novel should appeal to a wide range of listeners, including those seeking a psychological perspective on serial killers.
