The great thing about Lowndes’s plot is the tension she creates. Mrs. Bunting both defends and fears her lodger. His money keeps her alive, but does that make her complicit in the London murders that has everyone all a tizzy? If she tells the police her suspicions, but she’s wrong about her lodger, he’ll certainly move out. Tension thickens when Daisy, Mr. Bunting’s daughter from his first marriage, arrives for a visit. Typically, she lives with “old aunt,” but now a young girl in the house . . . and possibly a murderer (muh-hahaha!!).

The audio book narrator added a lot of tension in her voice. Each character had a distinct sound, so in a sense, Lorna Raver acted the book. But I felt Daisy’s sweet, young voice really set her apart from the shouty, stressed-out Mrs. Bunting (who is shouty and stressed out because her source of income may be slaying — and not in the way people use that word today!). Best of all, Lorna Raver provided a clear yet rapidly-paced narration, which kept this book from dragging on (it’s 8 hours/30 minutes). Highly recommended; a great horror tale!
