Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

John Lee’s great achievement in reading Ruth Rendell’s twentieth novel about Chief Inspector Wexford is his ability to draw the reader into the story. Lee provides a fully voiced performance of the book, differentiating the characters effectively; furthermore, his use of silence, of pace, of even his ever precise diction manages always to make the story intriguing. Lee’s accomplishment is all the more worthwhile since the novel, while as insightful about human nature as Rendell’s other Wexford books, is a bit straightforward and unsurprising in its plotting. The mystery centers around the relationship between the murders of two teenaged girls, one a recent mother and the other recently pregnant. Lee sounds truly interested in the story, and in some indefinable way that compels the listener’s attention, too. G.H.
