Talk about a killer deadline! Inspector Luke Thanet, the hero of Dorothy Simpson's series of mysteries set in England, has a murder and a wedding on his hands in Once Too Often. The wedding is his daughter's, and her future life partner has Thanet not a little worried; it comes almost as a relief, then, when the case of a possibly murdered newspaper reporter distracts him from more personal concerns. The victim, Jessica Dander, was found lying at the foot of her stairs with a broken neck. Though it looks like an accident, given the dead woman's unfortunately long list of enemies, murder cannot be counted out. As Thanet and his partner quietly go about the business of solving Dander's death, readers are treated to a well-written, carefully plotted story and characters whose portraits are richly detailed.From AudioFile:
Inspector Thanet, of the town of Sturrenden, called to the scene of what looks to be an accidental death, finds a myriad of lies that point instead to murder. For Thanet, Terrence Hardiman uses a natural speaking voice, with intonations matching the emotional states of the inspector. Hardiman gives Sergeant Mike Lineham a keener, crisper accent, which reflects his youth and vigor. He varies his tones, pronunciations, and rate of speech as he portrays the minor characters, highlighting his ability to play many roles. Hardiman slips easily into a cockney accent with the blue-collar characters, and these become his best efforts. The numerous voices parallel the complex plot of the story.
