Mozhan Marno’s calm, analytical delivery works well with Pavone’s complex mystery. An anonymous manuscript that reveals powerful secrets falls into the lap of Isabel Reed, who is desperate to rekindle her career in the ever-more-crowded publishing industry. Marno keeps her characterizations clear but minimal throughout a large cast of individuals who span nearly three decades as the manuscript wreaks havoc across lives, careers, and continents. Marno does well differentiating the three parts of the story: the events of a dark night decades ago that lead to the concealment of the manuscript, the author’s attempt to hide out in Zurich, posing as an ordinary ex-pat, and the text of the manuscript itself. The team of Marno and Pavone captivates in this mind-blowing mystery. S.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2014]
