Mystery & Suspense • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

In a crisp British accent, Jane Collingwood fills this mystery with tension as police investigate the 1990 disappearance of Charlotte Salter, who never arrived at her husband's fiftieth birthday party. Collingwood portrays Charlotte's 15-year-old daughter, Etty, as frantic, while her four brothers, who are mostly stoned or drunk, are voiced with all the nonchalance of teenagers. Collingwood ensures that their father comes across as utterly obnoxious. When the Salters' neighbor, Duncan Ackerley, drowns, Etty stridently voices her concern about her mother's absence. Thirty years later, another murder raises more questions and ratchets up the tension. Collingwood adopts mellower tones for the Ackerley and Salter families as they and hard-nosed DI Maud O'Connor uncover the startling truth.
