Mystery & Suspense • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1981

Perry turns over some rocks, or in this case tombstones, in Victorian England, and at least one slimy individual crawls out. It seems corpses are being disinterred and posed all over London. It's up to Inspector Thomas Pitt to investigate. Davina Porter gives a faultless performance; not a word of the text goes unappreciated. As the gulf between rich and poor is made clear in the story, that gulf is mirrored in Porter's differentiated accents and speech patterns. Her tone amply reinforces the emotions of the text--whether weariness, love, snobbery or disgust. Clipper has already released several Perry-Pitt-Porter collaborations, and at least one more is in the works. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
