Mystery & Suspense • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Listeners are swept into the wacky world of Los Angeles greeting card artist Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley--Wollie--and her paranoid-schizophrenic brother, P.B., who resides at Rio Pescado, a mental hospital. Deanna Hurst's engaging and sensitive reading embodies Wollie, who manages to deal with a murder, the Mafia, an appealing but mysterious love interest, and a killer in the course of this story. She also tries to date 40 guys in 60 days to earn $5,000 as part of a research project. Hurst keeps the action moving at a fast pace and the quirky characters realistic. Her performance reflects the story's humor as well as its dramatic ebb and flow. Overall, Hurst is well suited to this romantic mystery.
