As this audiobook opens, Hayley Burke is busy arranging an exhibition on Lady Fowling, the late benefactor who created the First Edition Library to honor classic literary detectives. When Hayley hires her former boss, Oona Atherton, to act as exhibition manager, everything goes well until someone pushes Oona down a spiral staircase in the same manner as the murder in Dorothy L. Sayers's MURDER MUST ADVERTISE, the featured book in the exhibition. Marisa Calin does an excellent job of performing this audiobook, especially in the way she emphasizes the connections between the classic mysteries that are part of the exhibition and aspects of the contemporary plot. She also creates believable voices for the characters and makes Hayley sound like someone listeners would want to know. V.M.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
