On today’s episode, host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s new novel set in the 1950s in Mexico, starring Noemí Taboada, a clever 22-year-old socialite sent into the countryside to check on her recently married cousin. What she finds is, at first, merely odd—but is slowly revealed to be truly horrific. Frankie Corzo skillfully conveys Noemí’s initial alarm and growing terror as she unravels the many mysteries of High Place and its enigmatic inhabitants.
