"Precise and evocative narration...a flawless performance." (AudioFile)
A decent mystery, but filled with too-neat coincidences and mysterious motivations. I have not read others in this series and this one did not make me particularly eager to do so.
The listless reader did nothing to bring the story to life. I think there's some wry humor there, but it doesn't come through in the reading. The French names, pronounced oh-so-correctly by the reader, were hard to understand in an audio version and sometimes made the story hard to follow.
Interesting. The main character does seem to have a way with getting into dangerous situations and the ones around her seem to have the same fate. Good thing she is normally around police officers.
