Barrie Kreinik perfectly narrates Reckless Girls, Rachel Hawkins’s new twisty thriller. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this story of a fun trip to a remote island in the South Pacific that turns into a nightmare. Kreinik smoothly takes listeners through all of the twists and seamlessly shifts among the characters’ varied accents – a Brit’s clipped consonants, a charming Australian’s broad vowels, and an American’s Southern drawl. As relaxation changes to fear, Kreinik deftly reflects the changing mood.
