This audiobook introduces the star of Langton's long-running mystery series, Homer Kelly, Harvard professor and amateur sleuth. Derek Perkins's narration lends the perfect patrician intonation and textbook cadence to this cozy mystery. As it takes listeners on a delightful ride through transcendental philosophy and murder most foul, it is a model of the genre. Not only does one hear quotes from Thoreau, but Perkins also recounts the beginnings of the pristine romance between Homer and Mary Morgan. Later, in contrast, Perkins vocally booms through the murders of two Concord, Massachusetts, citizens, showcasing his vocal depth. It's a murder mystery--but as gentle as they come.
