Narrator Kathryn Leigh Scott's deep, rich timbre and earnest tone evoke the ominous atmosphere of Ross's mystery. When Victoria Winters accepts a position as a governess at the remote Collinwood estate, she encounters troubled inhabitants, a history of suspicious accidents, and a family with much to hide. Skillful characterizations build the confusing world Victoria must navigate. Scott contrasts the supportive nature of Victoria's few confidants with the sleazy overtures of Roger Collins, mixed messages from matriarch Elizabeth, the tumultuous behavior of young David, and a forbidden romance with widower Ernest. The mounting tension in Scott's pacing magnifies the danger in Victoria's search for truth, which culminates in chilling reveals and perilous confrontations. Fans of the television series will be happy to hear that this installment is the first of many. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
