Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Deirdre Lovejoy

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Gerritsen's continuing characters are challenged anew when strange artifacts turn up in Boston's Crispin Museum. It seems someone's reviving the art of mummification—with contemporary victims. A beautiful young museum employee with a mysterious past gets kidnapped—will she be next? It's up to Detective Jane Rizzoli and M.E. Maura Isles to sort this out. Deirdre Lovejoy's reading is proof that a narrator doesn’t have to individualize each voice to create a top-notch audio. Yes, a few minor players get accents, but Lovejoy's real talent is for injecting personality into dialogue. With inflection she shows fear, arrogance, determination, intelligence, or confusion. She's also expert at handling suspense, and there's plenty to be had. Add clarity and a good pace, and you have a winner. J.B.G.
