Imogen Church's performance of Jones's audiobook is a master class in characterization. Listeners will be drawn in both by the compelling story of family, virtue, and greed and by Church's ability to achieve the sound of a full-cast production all by herself. The story involves Bea and Dan, a British couple who dip into their meager savings to take a vacation. Their first stop is a visit with Bea's brother, Alex, who is struggling to maintain a French hotel. This fateful visit begins a series of revelations about Bea's wealthy family, Alex's true behavior, and the seductive power of money. When Alex disappears mysteriously, secrets begin to come to light. Church's performance throughout is humorous, suspenseful, and, ultimately, harrowing, a perfect fit for an audiobook not to miss.
