“This light whodunit is made especially charming with Althens’ spot-on narration. By differentiating pitch and tone and using regional accents for all ages and genders, she produces a cast of fully recognized and distinct, quirky characters. A steady pacing keeps listeners engaged during this rollicking, fun ride.”

“Using a quiet, unassuming voice that channels Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s own unpretentious tones, narrator Suzie Althens delivers a pleasing performance of the story of Senator Warren’s life.”

"Althens uses distinctive voices, sometimes with accents that seem to belong to real people. She knows when to exercise restraint and when to unleash the power that makes this audiobook both scary and fun"
