Sophie Amoss does a neat turn narrating this enigmatic novel. Her delivery and pace bring its elliptical text to life. She smoothly switches from female to male characters through tone and timbre and from the diction of the 1870s to the world of 2016. Straightforwardly portraying two disturbed women--one an unlikely murderess, the other suicidal--she is convincing. She captures a Southern assassin and delivers especially good dialogue between the novel's two main characters, a teacher who is a conspiracy theorist and his death-seeking girlfriend, whom he is driving to a corpse farm in Tennessee. Their repartee provides the set piece of this brief audiobook. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
