Mystery & Suspense • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Nigel Anthony returns to narrate the 24th entry in Rendell’s popular Reginald Wexford series. In this installment, the ex-chief inspector finds a welcome diversion from a quiet retirement when his housekeeper discovers the body of the local vicar (a woman). Wexford is asked to consult on the case. Anthony is a master of characterization, not only varying his register and accent but also coloring the dialogue of each individual with the appropriate personality. Listeners quickly get a feel for Wexford's struggle to remember his new role as interested civilian as Anthony expertly conveys the ex-cop's difficulty in balancing his own opinions of the murder victim with his professionalism as a criminal investigator. Fans will love this glimpse of Wexford's life outside the office. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
