The year is 1972. Following a fatal accident, 22-year-old Adrienne makes a chance discovery that propels her to Paris in an effort to uncover what happened to her mother, who had deserted the family home 10 years before. A man professing to be her father agrees to help her and travels with her to Paris. What Adrienne discovers is a saga that spans three decades, with its roots in the Nazi occupation of Paris in 1942. 

The unwinding of the complex history behind her mother’s disappearance takes many twists and turns and is often shocking. This mystery-suspense novel is a fast-moving thriller suitable for all listeners.

Mystery in Paris and More

Adrienne has made a decision that has haunted her for years. She is going to try to find her missing mother! However, before she can leave for Paris (the last place her mother had been headed), a gentleman visits her and claims to be her father …

This is not your typical mystery, it is a mystery that spans years and involves Nazis, conmen, police, and more. This is an adventure filled with suspense and several twists. The author, Marilyn Freeman engages the listeners by giving insight into Adrienne’s thoughts and feelings. It was not all about adventure or suspense – it was about a young woman whose mother left her and while it was not touchy-feely – one did grasp somewhat how this young felt mentally and emotionally.

The characters, like the twists and plot, were well developed. The dialog was realistic, and the story flowed smoothly. Virginia Ferguson, the narrator, gave a solid performance with a consistent narration, distinct voices, and authentic-sounding accents. Her voice was soothing, and she interjected the right amount of inflection.

This is a good book for anyone looking for a good mystery with twists and one that draws in the listener.

There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook, it was clear and well produced.
