Jeff Woodman flawlessly narrates this mystery set in Texas. Biggie, also known as Fiona Weatherford, investigates the murder of Job's Crossing's new mortician, Monk Carter. Her 12-year-old grandson, J.R., tells the story, which is full of quirky Southern charm, knee-slapping humor, and engaging, eccentric characters. Woodman portrays these characters with variations in pacing, tone, and accent, dramatizing the suspense as Biggie and J.R. attempt to identify the killer. Woodman keeps a tight rein on the general silliness, the untidy plot, and the endless parade of goodies from Willie Mae's kitchen. Mystery fans will be delighted with Woodman's leisurely paced presentation. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
