Mystery & Suspense • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Listeners will enjoy narrator Marni Penning's portrayals of expats in this diverting audiobook set in the African nation of Numidia. Author Katie Crouch has used her knowledge of this remote locale to create a dramatically descriptive setting and vivid, intriguing characters. Penning breathes life into all of them, regardless of age, sex, or nationality. Presented are African ministers, schoolgirls, socialite wives, aspiring diplomats, and more. The story features three wives (two American, one Numidian) whose lives become entangled as secrets are exposed and familial roles upended. Part political satire, part love story, part travelogue, this is quality entertainment. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
