SMOKE AND MIRRORS Brighton, Book 2

by | Read by Daniel Philpott

Mystery & Suspense • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Daniel Philpott's vibrant character portrayals create palpable tension in this murder mystery set in Brighton, England. Detective Inspector Edgar Stephens's Christmas is off to a sinister start: Two children have gone missing. Philpott conveys the town's growing anxiety as time passes and they are not found. His diverse voices bring out the personalities of the town's characters, deftly capturing their observations and thoughts. Their evolving suspicion of one another will keep listeners guessing. Furthermore, Philpott's spirited renderings of the theater programs and the eerie rhyme penned by one of the child victims juxtapose the liveliness of the story with its menacing undertones. Philpott's alluring performance ratchets up the tension in this compelling procedural. M.F. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
