Randye Kaye gives a wonderful narration that complemented the story.
This is no fluffy thriller, there's a melancholy dark edge throughout, comprising of two stories that of a puzzling murder and of Dianes complex relationship with her mother.
Diana Pool has to go back to work as an actress, her bank balance will have it no other way, while filming a small but crucial part, Diana gets sucked into a murder investigation, while having to cope with the death of her mother and the burgeoning grief of a beloved husband.
Dianas character was so refreshing and forthright, no simpering, insecurities here, but a women who knows her own body and mind. I loved the way she used her acting skills to get where she wanted to be, her improvisations entertained.
One blow after another rains down on Dianas head, I was with her all the way and have not liked a character so much in a ages. although I guessed right about the murderer I was so totally wrong at the same time.
Your in for a treat , it's a multi-faceted plot with an intricate answer that does not really make itself known until towards the end.
It's fast placed, well plotted and worth a listen..
