Two personable people, Colin and Emily Hargreaves, encounter some serious scoundrels in the ninth mystery in the Lady Emily series. Thanks to Bianca Amato’s exceptional performance, this engaging piece of fluff takes on the necessary gravitas to keep listeners engaged. A woman posing as Estella Lamar, an eccentric heiress who hasn’t been seen in years, is murdered, and the Hargreaves are called upon to unravel a tangled web of deceit. Amato’s reading heats up when delivering each flirtatious exchange between the elegant, well-matched Hargreaves. She makes each voice unique, brings verisimilitude to each event, and is completely convincing as the search for the real Estella intensifies. Kidnapping, madness, unsavory characters, murder most foul—none of it proves too much for Amato. A fun listen. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2015]
