Mystery & Suspense • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Another delightful entry in the Isabel Dalhousie series is narrated delightfully by Davina Porter. While the story revolves ostensibly around the mysterious life of Isabel's acquaintance, Minty Auchterlonie, the heart of the novel lies in Isabel's philosophical musings on almost any topic under the sun. With her leisurely delivery, Porter captures Isabel's meandering train of thought, and her tone conveys the curiosity and amusement with which a philosopher might view the world. Porter handles other voices adeptly as well, including the quiet warmth of a dependable boyfriend, the snideness of a not-so-dependable one, the blithe manner of an opportunist, and the endearing tentativeness of a toddler speaking his first word.
