Kate Rudd is an appealing actor with a lovely instrument, but she gets far less help than she needs here from her producers. The plot, starring Alix London, mildly ditzy girl art expert, involves a Ponzi scheme set among the international superrich on a yacht in the Aegean. Alix's father, an American ex-con art fraudster, is supposed to have a fake English accent, but Rudd's voicing goes way beyond plausible, and the English art dealer with the "real" accent sounds much like him. Her French is sometimes right, sometimes wrong (for the same word), but most distracting, she mispronounces far too many words well known to English speakers. (Scion. Damask. Madoff. Savile Row.) This book is goofy fun, but Rudd should have been better supported. B.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2013]
