Harriet Walter, an English actor of wide experience, performs this clever English mystery with imagination. Jane Martello sets out to find the murderer of her childhood friend, Natalie, whose body has unexpectedly turned up in the garden many years later. Since the murder happened so long ago, Jane must depend upon the memories of others and on her own recovered memory, which is nudged to the fore by the convincing psychiatrist, Alex. Walter's voices are superb, especially her male voices (which are notoriously difficult for female interpreters). Her authentic-sounding British dialects, her perfect enunciation and pacing, and her perceived pleasure in spinning a good story all make for a worthy production. Just wait until you get to the ending! P.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR/APR 98]
