Publisher's Summary

Anita Margolis had vanished. There was no body, no crime, nothing more concrete than an anonymous letter and a name. A pattern soon emerged to the investigation. Not only had Anita been wealthy and flighty, she had been thoroughly immortal, too.

A Throroughly Enjoyable Mystery!

Other reviewers have summarized the plot - I will just say it is a remarkable feat to create this very complex mystery and carefully reveal the solution in less than 6 hours. Rendell is a master - you will not be disappointed with this one!

boring to listen to

boring story to listen to, couldn't get into the story, as the reading is very monotonous.

Good story, irritating narrator

Any additional comments?

Not the best Rendell but pretty good. I found the narrator's voice irritating. It was rasping. As always a good twist at the end.

Better than expected

Enjoyed it - once it got into it. It really is a bit of a slow boil.

Kind of guessed what the denouement was likely to be but still enjoyed the journey.
