Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee, Gideon Emery, Rosalyn Landor, Angela Goethals

Mystery & Suspense • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

This collection contains two short stories and two novellas featuring Robinson's well-known Yorkshire policeman, Inspector Alan Banks. An additional seven short stories show the breadth of Robinson's talent for suspense, with a wide range of settings and characters. John Lee handles the Inspector Banks stories with a straight narration, using his pacing to create anticipation. The remaining stories are delivered by a narrator whose voicing captures the mood of each story. Gideon Emery provides a deeper, more gravelly performance, while Rosalyn Landor delivers hers in a smooth British accent. In a surprising contrast, Angela Goethals reads with a childlike innocence that is both strikingly at odds with the more serious tones of the others and yet perfectly suited to the themes of the stories she relates.
