Chris Harper's deep voice is engaging enough to keep listeners listening to this confusing meta-mystery. Joël Dicker, the main character and author, recently split from his relationship and, experiencing writer's block, checked into a Geneva luxury hotel, hoping for quiet and inspiration. His curiosity is piqued when he discovers that the hotel has rooms numbered 621, 621A, and 623, but no 622. Harper is excellent at picking up dangling plot threads and weaving them into a comprehensible fabric. His voice is compelling as Joël and a fellow guest discover that 16 years earlier someone was killed in Room 622. Details were kept in-house, and the murder is still unsolved. Despite Harper's ratcheting up of tension and appealing character renditions, sudden time shifts weaken the novel's credibility. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
