When Meg Venturi returns to her childhood home for her grandfather's funeral, she finds herself embroiled in a mystery a generation old--involving adultery, murder, and a very attractive but close-mouthed jewelry designer named Riley. This British production is read by a transplanted Dallasite, which leads to some interesting pronunciations. Starr has a soothing, low-pitched voice and the deliberate enunciation of a classically trained actor. Characterization is subtle, but convincing, in male and female voices. At first, the tempo seems a bit slow, languid even, but that suits this carefully crafted story which circuitously approaches the mystery at its core.
