The artistic, accomplished voice of Eunice Wong introduces listeners to the glamorous world of the stately Savoy Hotel in London, its famous guests, and backstairs shenanigans. In 1968, Priscilla Tempest, a mini- skirt-clad young Canadian, is employed as head of the press office for the Savoy Hotel. Wong gives her a clear, pleasant voice that is distinct from the voices of her English co-workers. Wong portrays guests, employees, spies, and murder victims in a subtle, wholly believable fashion. While this story is technically a murder mystery, listeners will spend more time spying on the rich, royal, and famous than pondering suspects. This is the first novel in a new series. Let's hope they are all as effervescent and fun as this one. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
