Mystery & Suspense • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

What terrified missionary Walter Teller so much that it first paralyzed him, then caused him to run away from his family? How will Inspector Ian Rutledge and Hamish (his invisible sidekick) solve the mystery of the disappearance of Walter Teller and the subsequent murder of Florence Teller? Simon Prebble puts his considerable talents to work with a variety of accents from the length and breadth of the British Isles. While Rutledge pokes and prods at the dark secrets of Teller's extended family, Prebble shifts accent and intonation to mimic the background of each character. Slowly and confidently, the detective tugs at the web of deceit that began many years before WWI, unraveling it in bits and pieces. Prebble's gruff tones bring forth tales of the war that echo throughout this mystery and the Teller family itself. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
