Cursed: A Regan Reilly Mystery

Carol Higgins Clark, Author, Carol Higgins Clark, Read by , read by the author. Audioworks $29.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7435-7966-7

Few authors perform their own work nowadays, but Carol Higgins Clark prefers to read her own novels as well as some of those of her mother, Mary Higgins Clark. Unfortunately, as evidenced by her awkward performance of this light Hollywood murder mystery the younger Higgins Clark is not a skillful audio performer. Most of the characters sound similar with a noticeable regional accent (New Jersey?), and her voice rises into a faint question at the end of each sentence; it sounds as we are eavesdropping as Higgins Clark tries out the lines aloud in front of her computer. While a Barbara Rosenblat or Linda Emond could work wonders with the entertaining material, the book suffers from the author's amateurish delivery. A Scribner hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 30). (Apr.)
