Description
Amory Ames is a wealthy young woman who questions her marriage to her notoriously charming playboy husband, Milo. Looking for a change, she accepts a request for help from her former fiance, Gil Trent. Amory accompanies Gil to the luxurious Brightwell Hotel in an attempt to circumvent the marriage of his sister, Emmeline, to Rupert Howe, a disreputable ladies' man. Amory sees in the situation a grim reflection of her own floundering marriage. There is more than her happiness at stake, however, when Rupert is murdered and Gil is arrested for the crime. Amory is determined to prove his innocence and find the real killer. As the stakes grow higher and the line between friend and foe becomes less clear, Amory must decide where her heart lies and catch the killer before she, too, becomes a victim.

        February 23, 2015
        Voice actress Fulford-Brown turns in a lackluster reading of Weaver’s Edgar Award–nominated debut mystery, set in 1932 England. The story revolves around Amory Ames, a wealthy young woman who becomes a plucky amateur sleuth when she learns that her former fiancé is a suspect in a murder investigation. Weaver’s tremendously strong plot, fresh style, and skillfully crafted writing fades in Fulford-Brown’s presentation of it, which is dirge-like and frequently belies the text. The excellent production value is lost on her fatigued read, with its frequently off-putting intonation, pronunciation, and cadence. A Minotaur hardcover.

      • content: What happens to lovely Amory Ames when she realizes she is unhappily married to her wealthy lady killer husband and then finds herself in the midst of a murder investigation? British narrator, Karen Cass portrays a cast of diversified characters, including Amory seeking solace from an old flame at his sister's wedding at the English seaside Brightwell Hotel. When the groom is murdered, Cass turns up the action with high energy capturing the tension felt by the quirky guests, all suspects, as they are interrogated. Cass is delightful, painting vivid images of each character. She interprets Amory's emotional struggle with her old flame as the icy wall between she and husband begins to thaw. Especially charming is her interpretation of Amory's witty husband--very Cary Grant. Eccentric suspects, a man falsely accused and a husband and wife sleuth team in the search of a killer all makes for quite a riveting ride told by a skilled story teller.

        August 25, 2014
        Fans of plucky female amateur sleuths will welcome Amory Ames, the heroine of Weaver’s pleasing debut set in 1932 England. Amory’s rake of a husband, Milo, a man she “loves and hates in equal proportions,” has just returned from Monte Carlo, where he was reported to have spent time with other women. Meanwhile, Gil Trent, the man Amory was engaged to before Milo swept her off her feet five years earlier, invites her to join him and others in a large party planning to stay a week at the Brightwell Hotel in Kent. There Gil hopes Amory will help persuade his 23-year-old sister to stop seeing a man he deems unsuitable. Amory accepts, but she soon turns detective after a fellow hotel guest turns up dead and another is suspected of foul play. Despite the routine sleuthing and predictable love triangle, the affable Amory could carry a series, though plausibly involving her in future murder cases will require some imagination.
