Imogen Church’s extraordinary narration of Ruth Ware’s newest suspense novel, One by One, will keep listeners glued to their earbuds, unable to do anything else but listen wide-eyed and rapt. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this thrilling homage to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None. Ware has taken the premise of an isolated house with an unidentified killer, cleverly updated the who, where, and what, and pumped up the dread with parallel first-person narrations. It’s witty, cunning, and addictive.
