The Inheritance

Simon Tolkien, read by the author, Brilliance Audio, unabridged, 10 CDs, 12.5 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4233-9028-2
When an eccentric millionaire historian is murdered, his son falls under suspicion as a prosecutor seeks only a conviction, not the truth. But other suspects are soon exposed—as is a WWII crime of insupportable greed and cruelty perpetrated by the murder victim and his cronies. Tolkien (grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien) takes his story as far from fancy as it can go, writing of dark days during France's Nazi occupation and dramatic courtroom suspense, 1950s style. In this audio rendition, he proves himself a superb storyteller in his own right as he reads his mystery with a theatrical flair. His deep voice is resonant and cultured, and his characterizations are fully believable. A Minotaur hardcover. (Apr.)
