"A myriad of Scottish, English and Welsh accents, as well as male and female voices, are masterfully handled by Davina Porter in this complex murder which takes place as a London theater company meets in a manor house. The distinction of the characters' social classes and ages are central to the story as Inspector Lynley and Sergeant Havers are at odds on just this issue. Since George tends toward melodrama, the narrator thankfully tones down the pace--so the story isn't lost in emotional fury. The author's use of atmosphere as a character is also well-rendered. George's impressive following makes this title worth adding to all collections. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
