Narrator Catherine Ho delivers a stellar performance of this fast-paced caper audiobook. She perfectly inhabits Ava Wong, a frazzled wife and mother who is on hiatus from her law career, as well as Winnie Fang, Ava's former shy classmate from 20 years ago, who's now rich and full of confidence. Winnie's been running a global fake handbag scheme, in which Ava becomes entangled. The first half is told from Ava's first-person point of view, which listeners quickly learn is being delivered to a detective. Ho's sharp narration expertly builds tension and conveys the story's sardonic tone. The second half provides a third-person perspective from Winnie. Throughout, Ho channels both characters' manipulative and subversive qualities and keeps listeners guessing at what's real in this entertaining listen. V.T.M.
