Behind the Curtain

Peter Abrahams, Author, Colleen Delany, Performed by , read by Colleen Delaney. HarperAudio $27.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-06-089734-5

Abrahams knows how to catch the voices of all of his characters, no matter what their age—most especially his Sherlock Holmes-loving eighth-grade heroine Ingrid Levin-Hill. This second book about her, firmly rooted in the fictional but instantly familiar town of Echo Falls, is read perfectly by Delaney, who quietly but persuasively brings considerable excitement to Abrahams's words. Young listeners who already love books will be naturally intrigued, as Ingrid uses Holmes's methods to dig into several mysteries about her own family and her town. And even youngsters who have never read a Sherlock Holmes story will be won over by the perilous adventure so expertly presented. Ages 10-up. (June )
