Ann Beck disappears on the Hallowmount and reappears days later with many questions. Detective George Felse arrives on the scene to investigate a death that may tie into her mysterious wanderings. Peters is the bestselling author of the Brother Cadfael series of medieval whodunits. The lavish English accent of narrator Derek Hutchinson provides a vivid look at the countryside in England where this story takes place. The fiction is composed of copious descriptions related with precision. Character vocalizations are uniquely discernible and assist one in following the plot. As the mystery unfolds, the narration lures one along a trail of betrayal, robbery, and murder. B.J.L. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
