Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Isabel Dalhousie, editor of a philosophy review, has a new baby, fathered by her niece's ex-boyfriend, Jamie. Naturally, Cat, her prickly niece, isn't too happy. Then Isabel gets fired. In the meantime, she suspects that some paintings thought to have been done by a now deceased artist are forged. Isabel is kind, intelligent, determined, and a bit meddlesome. All this comes through in dialogue delivered in an infectious Scots burr while Davina Porter's crisp English diction carries the narrative parts. Something in her voice makes you pay close attention not only to what's happening but also to where it's happening--whether it's Edinburgh or a remote Scottish island. Plot, setting, and a superb reading combine for an enjoyable listen. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
