Mystery with potential

Would you try another book from Katharine Newlin Burt and/or Daniela Acitelli?

I'm not in a hurry to read another Newlin Burt novel. The characters ran either hot or cold in a matter of page of narration. Ms. Acitelli did a fair job of narrating this piece. Overall, something wasn't quite right. Perhaps the style of narration did not fit the classic masterpiece mystery style this called for? Ms. Acitelli did keep me listening 'til the very end. Kudos to Ms. Acitelli.

The overall accents for the various characters took away from the narration. I could not tell if the servants were southern negro or lower class English. I believe they were supposed to be uneducated, southern negro.

What three words best describe Daniela Acitelli’s voice?

Nice, articulate, storyteller
