Narrator Lauren Ambrose performs this creatively crafted mystery featuring Molly, a maid at the Regency Grand Hotel who discovers the body of a regular guest in his suite. Lauren Ambrose is exceptional at capturing this propulsive story, giving listeners a sense of all the details as well as the emotional cues that Molly doesn’t necessarily pick up on.
