THE RECKONING Children's House, Book 2

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lucy Patterson

Mystery & Suspense • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

With a remarkable ability to subtly distinguish myriad characters, Lucy Patterson masterfully narrates this thriller, the second featuring Detective Huldar and child psychologist Freyja. Ten years ago, a child wrote a series of initials on a letter for a school time capsule. Somehow, those letters are tied to a series of grisly murders. In a crisp British accent, Patterson handles the Icelandic names with ease. Listeners new to the trilogy will quickly find themselves immersed in the lives of the characters revolving around the mystery. Patterson excels at the interrogation scenes, moving seamlessly between the questioner and the questioned. Her timing and delivery, including subtle pauses and sighes, are transfixing. The story is grim, however, with harrowing glimpses of cruelty and violence toward children. A.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
