Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Lydia Chin is a P.I. working out of New York’s Chinatown—to the despair of her mother, who expected all her children to be doctors. In this caper, Lydia and her round-eye partner, Bill, are on the trail of some alleged new artworks by a painter known to have died at Tiananmen Square. As always, Rozan’s mise-en-scène is terrific, her characters are smart and funny, and the plot cracks along. Emily Woo Zeller performs well except that she has made a weird choice to speak Lydia and other young women in her normal chest voice and pitch the male characters higher, where she has no room to maneuver. Bill’s voice is especially jarring. Still, there’s a great deal of fun to be had here. B.G. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2012]
