Amory Ames, a young British woman whose husband, Milo, is an exceptionally handsome but philandering playboy, accepts an invitation from her ex-fiancé, Gilbert Trent, to spend a week at a seaside resort frequented by the British upper class in order to convince Emmeline, Gil's sister, of the folly of marrying Rupert Howe. When Rupert is murdered, and Gil is arrested, Amory is determined to find the killer. Billie Fulford-Brown's dramatic reading breathes life into the characters. She captures Mrs. Nelson's meek demeanor, Milo's cool manner, and Amory's romantic confusion.
VERDICT Highly recommended for patrons who enjoy mysteries, romance, British manners, and Henry James novels.
