Narrator Saskia Maarleveld is simply outstanding as she seamlessly shifts accents, tones, and pace to create a stunning depiction of the tensions underlying a seemingly ordinary Paris neighborhood. Subtle social commentary is interwoven throughout the intricately structured plot. Maarleveld flawlessly portrays six women, some of whom may have played a role in the death of 9-year-old Julien's death. They are Charlotte, Julien's chilly mother; Natalie, Julien's insecure half-sister; Lou, Holly, and Alena, three American au pairs; and Geraldine, a compassionate teacher. An enthralling listening experience for fans of character-driven stories, as well as mysteries.
