    "A classic mystery"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, and have many times, recommended this book to a friend. It is a pure, classic mystery. The reader/listener is all the time being given the necessary clues and also being led down the garden path by the author. Absolutely delicious!

    Have you listened to any of Penelope Dellaporta’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
