Narrator Helen Lloyd transports listeners to rural Suffolk during WWII as villagers prepare to house a group of children who have been evacuated from London. Josephine Tey, a character based on a real-life Scottish mystery writer of the same name, and fellow residents find their lives turned upside down as a series of events uncovers sinister secrets. Lloyd's clear narration helps create the perfect backdrop for this historical mystery. In particular, her character portrayals produce believable males and females with authentic-sounding accents. Her voicing of Josephine Tey is especially strong, as she gives the character a rich Scottish brogue. She also injects just the right sinister undertones into the spinster sisters and their brother. Lloyd's excellent pacing helps keep the plot moving to a satisfying conclusion. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
