Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Adam Dalgliesh is summoned to the college of St. Anselm's to investigate the death of the son of a powerful businessman. Having spent the summers of his youth in East Anglia, Dalgliesh agrees to revisit the school only to be met with more murder and mystery. Charles Keating sets a quiet, funereal tone in his reading to impress us with the religious atmosphere of the story. Apart from the dialogue, in which he bestows personality to each character, he maintains the somber tone as a scenic background to the action. Were the first chapter read by a woman, to clarify the position of that character in the novel, the listener would be less bewildered by the subsequent shift in point of view and the novel would offer more color to its audience.
