Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Steven Mackintosh

Mystery & Suspense • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Nothing is exactly what it seems in Louise Candlish's expertly plotted mystery. Narrator Steven Mackintosh offers up a chilling performance as Jamie Buckby. Jamie and Claire live well on Claire's income. Due to extreme claustrophobia, Jamie commutes to work by boat. He begins a friendship of a sort with fellow commuter Kit. Kit and his gorgeous wife, Melia, both actors, are nearing financial ruin. When Kit disappears, Jamie suddenly finds himself the focus of a police investigation. Mackintosh keeps Jamie believably innocent. His portrayals of women are intelligent and believable. When things heat up, you can almost hear Jamie's heart pounding in Mackintosh's voice. Candlish brings extraordinary psychological insights into play, and Mackintosh delivers the emotions. S.J.H.
