Publisher's Summary

Judith, nearly 40, finds herself divorced and living with her mother. She becomes attracted to a female glass artisan, one of her mother’s friends, that has a history of manipulating those who care about her. While exhibiting their works at an art show, Judith and her mother become entangled in a grisly murder.


Audible Editor Reviews

Elements of the uncanny abound in Jack Bates’ The Bending of Glass: A middle-aged photographer who moves back in with her schizophrenic mother, a famous artist whose paintings usually revolve around a mysterious waifish girl, and an artist who works in beautiful flowing glass and has problems with an abusive boyfriend, all coalesce when a murder takes place involving a glass fragment. Laurel Merlington performs this first-person mystery with enthusiasm. She delights in voicing the mother’s various and colored personae. The mystery unfolds with artistry in the context of a quaint art show and becomes more enigmatic as the local police get involved and the plot takes unexpected turns.

Nothing spectacular.

I must admit I found that there was nothing spectacular in the story, but okay if you want to listen to something for a short time.
