Frankie Corzo’s velvety voice puts listeners under her spell as she narrates this horror audiobook. Noemí Taboada is a clever 22-year-old anthropology student buzzing between parties in 1950s Mexico City. She is quite put out when her father sends her to the countryside to check on her recently married cousin, Catalina, whose in-laws built their fortune with an ill-fated mine. Corzo conveys Noemí’s initial alarm at the many restrictions and pervasive ethnocentrism of the English family ensconced in their isolated mansion, High Place. Later, her concern about Catalina’s—and her own—deteriorating mental state grows. Listeners share Noemí’s developing terror as she unravels the many mysteries of High Place and its enigmatic inhabitants. A suspenseful and atmospheric narration makes this an audiobook listeners won’t soon forget. E.E.C. 2020 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
