Suzanne Toren returns to narrate the long-awaited ninth installment in the Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne series. Toren masterfully voices three stories of murder spanning more than 50 years and having overlapping characters. Listeners will need to pay attention to the announcement of the time period that begins each chapter. Toren differentiates the many characters through varying tone, pace, and, for Clare, a Southern accent. While her choice of a meek voice for 30-something Officer Knox is off-putting, Toren otherwise seems in perfect step with author Spencer-Fleming. Fans invested in these well-developed and engaging characters will make allowances for the main storyline, which stretches credulity. Listeners are treated to the bonus of an informative dialogue between author and narrator at the end of the audiobook. E.Q. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
