Kirsten Potter has raised the bar with her breathtaking reading of this historical mystery. Without detracting the least bit from protagonist Inez Stannert, Potter gives equal attention to her portrayals of minor characters. Her depiction of Bridgette, an Irish cook in Stannert’s saloon, is spot-on. Handyman Useless’s bumbling persona is painted expertly. Each chapter is a delight as Stannert puzzles over her husband’s disappearance and the death of assayer Joe Rose. Not averse to dressing as a man to gain entry to houses of ill repute and to mining operations in 1870s Colorado, she uncovers shady dealings, counterfeiting, and blackmail as she untangles the web leading to Rose’s murder. SILVER LIES is a triumph for both author and narrator. J.J.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2013]
