Mystery & Suspense • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Simon Prebble has all the voices in this amusing English mystery about very large ex-Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond. Diamond is trying to establish the identity of an autistic Japanese girl abandoned in Harrod's department store. His efforts attract the attention of Japan's top sumo wrestler, whose girth makes Diamond look underfed. What chance can Mafia thugs have against these two? You'll find out. Just as you'll find out how beautifully Prebble can voice a large, international group of characters. He creates an ensemble cast all on his own and directs them with perfect pacing. This is a very entertaining 10 hours of listening. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
