In Graves's popular series, the listener gets home repair tips along with murder. In the first chapter of this book, narrator Lindsay Ellison delivers a compelling look into the thoughts of a hit man. Her taut, cool narration builds tension and enthralls. In the second chapter there is a complete change of pace as we are introduced to a New Yorker transplanted to Eastport, Maine. As the focus shifts to personal issues and home repair projects, Ellison transitions expertly to the necessary folksy tone. Eventually, the two stories merge, and listeners are treated to a well-plotted and well-read mystery. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
