British narrator Gabrielle Glaister unravels Lisa Jewell's latest murder mystery with emotional authenticity and true English intonation. Headmaster Tom Fitzwilliam is admired by many in the English town of Melville Heights, including neighbor Joey Mullen, who develops a fixation on the married father. However, Jenna Tripp, one of Tom's students, doesn't think Tom is as perfect as everyone seems to believe. Furthermore, Tom's son, Freddie, is obsessed with observing people and their whereabouts. Glaister keeps the listener guessing using soft pauses and portrayals that reflect the characters. The way she expresses Joey's feelings toward Tom is emotional and distinctive. Freddie's compulsion and feelings of inadequacy are portrayed compellingly, while Jenna's inquisitiveness comes to the fore throughout Glaister's storytelling. An enticing listen.
