Aubrey Parsons credibly conveys both 1970 and contemporary Yorkshire, England, in this grim procedural. Listeners meet Detective Inspector Harry Grim as he confronts a gruesome farm accident--or a clever murder? The victim was hated by everyone. Parsons artfully renders the many characters, particularly Grim's dedicated team. The 1970 victim, a bullied autistic schoolgirl, was killed after seeing a frightening safety film. The questioning of angry and suspicious suspects--with their diverse rural accents--is electrifying. In a heartbreaking scene, Parsons presents the girl's father's excruciating testimony about the tragedy and its aftermath. A touching interview with author Gatward reveals the satisfaction he found in writing about an actual government film once used to scare kids about farm hazards. This horrifying story is enhanced by Parsons's virtuoso performance. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
