Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Graeme Malcolm entrances listeners with the investigator’s probe of Dennis Rodgers. The story’s title, “The Other Half,” takes on a double meaning when Isobel turns over a partial letter as a clue in the case against her other half. Malcolm artistically depicts the torn missive with jagged rips in his reading. This Holmesian-style mystery, included in Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series, is a mere quarter of hour, perfect for a short drive or other limited listening situation. It can also be paired with other stories from the series for a longer audio immersion in crime fiction.” AudioFile
