Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Wanda McCaddon's elegant narration is the perfect complement to this refined historical mystery. The story takes us to 1780s England, where the formidable Mrs. Harriet Westerman has found a dead body on her estate. Her first act is to summon Gabriel Crowther, a reclusive anatomist who has recently taken up residence locally. The two discover that a mystery is at hand and hasten to solve it, only to uncover a deeply tangled web of deceit and murder. McCaddon does a superior job depicting characters from every social strata—man, woman, or child—and her skillful pacing maintains the natural tension of the plot while helping listeners discern the myriad elements of this divinely intricate story.
