Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Prebble

Mystery & Suspense • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Simon Prebble is an astounding narrator of dialogue. From him, conversations seem to involve a large cast rather than a single actor. This entry in the Chief Inspector Alan Banks series gives Prebble ample opportunity to shine, for in between the theater-worthy conversation the narrative flows beautifully. Banks is investigating a brutal rape and murder in downtown Eastvale. His erstwhile colleague/friend/lover Annie Cabbot, on loan to another station, is working on an equally brutal case, the murder of a quadriplegic woman living in a care facility. Nothing suggests a relationship between the two deaths until a third murder occurs on Banks's turf. Clever plot, excellent narration. R.E.K.
