Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

Thriller writer Trevanian turns to a suspenseful romance set in pre-World War I France. Love leads to nightmare and the revelation of a young woman's chilling secret. The writing is meant as a memoir and is purposely stilted. Read aloud, it sounds even more so. Narrator Ray Verna makes some minor but noticeable pronunciation errors. The effect of the quirky, surprise ending is nearly lost in the toneless narration. However, the "buy a tape for your library" notice in the package will be welcomed by librarians.
