Mystery & Suspense • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

After a plodding start, the story evolves into several intertwined mysteries. Hardiman skillfully conveys the astonishment felt by each character as secrets are uncovered, one after another. Using variations of British accents and regional brogues, and employing subtle inflections denoting age and temperament, Hardiman makes it easy for the listener to identify and follow individual characters. He is especially adept at male characterizations, but female personae also develop distinct personalities. His adroit narration exposes us to a range of human conditions, from Victorian propriety to ruthless murder. B.L.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
