Hanging Hill

Mo Hayder, read by Rosalyn Landor. Dreamscape Media, unabridged, 13 CDs, 14 hrs., $59.99 ISBN 978-1-61120-542-8
Zoe and Sally are two estranged sisters living in Bath, England. Sally is a mousy, recently divorced mother, while Zoe is a tough, career-minded detective inspector. But the two are drawn back together by a circuitous series of dangerous and deadly events that begin with the brutal murder of a teenage girl and will change their lives and relationship dramatically. Rosalyn Landon’s calm, skillfully accented narration perfectly captures the mood of Hayder’s thrilling mystery. But it’s the narrator’s portrayal of the characters that truly shines. Landor’s rendition of the timorous Sally is perfect, as is her interpretation of the stronger but troubled Zoe. And Landor is just as adept in her layered portrayals of the teenagers, pompous thugs, witchy wives, and other supporting characters that populate the novel. An Atlantic Monthly hardcover. (Jan.)
