Shortly after seeing his father, presumed dead, in a passing stagecoach, freelance reporter Martin Pemberton goes missing from New York City in 1871. Narrator Mark Bramhall introduces McIlvaine, Martin's seasoned editor, with a rumbling baritone that invites listeners to settle in for a perplexing mystery and an engaging study of a changing metropolis. As the dedicated chronicler McIlvaine, Bramhall is reflective, unbothered by the natural pauses that arise during moments of consideration or by the digressions that provide important context to present events. When Captain Donne, an unusually astute and incorruptible policeman, joins the search, Bramhall further deepens his voice, capturing Donne's imposing figure and his measured voice of reason. The result is a memorable investigative partnership that uncovers much more than a simple disappearance. A.S. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
