As whispers about the dead abound in a 1920s speakeasy at the start of this audiobook, Sara Young's narration adds to listeners' curiosity. Vivian Kelly, a dancer at the illegal club, begins looking into the death of her friend's uncle, a former customer, with the help of Leo, a shady guy who is also associated with the club. The uncle's death was reported to be a suicide--but Vivian is suspicious. Young makes Vivian sound both determined and nervous, adding to the effectiveness of scenes in which she wheedles answers from reluctant people who may have clues to what happened. Young also captures Vivian's inner conflict as she weighs her romantic feelings for both Leo and Honor, the woman who runs the nightclub. Young's delivery of Schellman's cliff-hangers keeps listeners on the hook. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
