“The author herself narrates several [stories] and is joined for the rest by practiced narrators Robin Miles and Janina Edwards…Miles and Edwards, in particular, read at a pace just leisurely enough to increase the suspense. At the end of each work, a note is included from the author with background information and her inspiration for the story.”
