Best-selling author Minette Walters captivates mystery aficionados throughout the world with her evocative, multi-layered novels, which have been translated into 22 languages. In The Echo she spins a finely-wrought web of secrets and betrayals, love and guilt that entangles everyone who touches it. A homeless man has been found dead of starvation-huddled next to a food-filled freezer-in a London socialite's garage. When journalist Michael Deacon interviews the wealthy woman, he suspects she is hiding something. His search for answers leads him on a perilous journey through unsolved crimes of the past and the shadowy world of London's down and out. Edgar Award-winner Minette Walters grips her readers' emotions with her ever-heightening psychological suspense. British actor Simon Prebble's dramatic performance will keep you enthralled throughout the sinuous plot and the shattering finish.

Professional reviews

"Minette Walters's signature is dark psychological suspense. In this long introspection into diverse lives, a homeless man is found dead of starvation in the garage of a successful woman architect, and a persistent journalist, Michael Deacon, uncovers connections between them. Simon Prebble handles the various challenges of the story and characters with exceptional sureness. He handles Deacon's conjecture of possible crimes and motives with eerie reality and deftly delivers an unusual variety of communications--dialogue, interviews, written faxes, letters, as well as narrative. Key characters cover all ages and classes, from the delinquent teen to the erudite attorney. Prebble portrays them memorably, juggling each as parts of the intriguing puzzle. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
