A KILLER IN WINTER Matthew Bartholomew, Book 9

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Thorpe

Mystery & Suspense • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

David Thorpe's sterling delivery brings to life the rich descriptions of fourteenth-century Cambridge in this mystery. He expertly portrays physician Matthew Bartholomew and Brother Michael, an unlikely duo who investigate as the body count rises during a harsh winter. Frustration surfaces as each suspect is cleared. Listeners will be amused as Bartholomew encounters good-natured ribbing when his former fiancée and her husband visit. As portrayed by Thorpe, the protagonists' boisterously enjoy traditional Christmastime misrule. The elderly and infirm are convincing while Thorpe's expressions of raw emotion at sudden death are palpable. Sharp-tongued Agatha, the laundress who fears no man--or criminal--adds much-needed levity. Historical notes regarding medieval Christmas traditions and hearing that many characters are based on real people add interest. S.G.B.
