Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Rosalyn Landor returns as Bess Crawford, a WWI nurse and sleuth who adeptly solves mysteries that come her way in the British Isles. In A BITTER TRUTH, Bess, by chance, encounters a woman in distress in London and then accompanies her to her estate in Sussex, where dire consequences and murder ensue. Landor's clear enunciation denotes Bess's upbringing, common sense, and compassion. Landor also creates recognizable variation between all the women’s voices. In particular, bold and authoritative matriarchs' voices are contrasted with those of relatives who speak with deference. However, male characters all converse in the same gruff tone. Bess's suspenseful leave in England ends with a harrowing quest as she returns to war-ravaged France. A.W. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2011]
