The kicker: the boy who tips him off to the case could in fact be his illegitimate son. As Sandilands, narrator Simon Prebble is charming yet stern. His British accent is perfect for this brooding tale. Prebble’s character interpretations are subtle, yet accurate and believable; his acting chops and colorful pallet of tones and voices are on display from the get go. Perfect for both young and old, this audio edition is an enjoyable ride. A Soho Crime hardcover. (Sept.)
