LOST BIRDS A Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito Novel

by | Read by Jessica Matten

Mystery & Suspense • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Jessica Matten, a Canadian actor of Red River Métis and Cree heritage, deftly narrates the ninth installment in this series, drawing from her role as Officer Bernadette Manuelito in the DARK WINDS streaming series. Matten skillfully conveys the full range of emotions of the characters, young and old, illuminating the complex dynamics of family relationships. Former tribal policeman Joe Leaphorn, now a P.I., takes on two challenging cases: Finding the missing wife of a young man from his past and searching for the birth parents of a "lost bird," a Native American adopted by white parents. Matten subtly differentiates characters and keeps listeners engaged by heightening the tension of the action scenes. Her performance underscores the cultural insights of the narrative, ensuring an immersive and memorable listening experience. E.Q. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
