Golden Voice narrator Bahni Turpin’s versatile narration pulls together the many threads in Nicole Glover’s debut novel, The Conductors, a heady mix of historical fantasy, magic, and mystery set in Reconstruction-era Philadelphia. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss Bahni’s many skills used to bring this audiobook to life—and so many other memorable listens. Hetty and Benjy Rhodes, once conductors on the Underground Railroad, now use their magic to investigate crimes in Philadelphia’s Black community. When a friend is found murdered, they realize with horror that the murderer may be someone from within that community. An excellent and engrossing listen for fans of genre-blended books.
