A Brooding Mystery in a Forgotten Seaside Village

The blustery wild coast and a spirit-filled sea cave make an eerie setting for the small, almost forgotten village of Burrowhead. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss how Julie Maisey rises to the challenge of narrating Helen Sedgwick’s new brooding mystery, When the Dead Come Calling. DI Georgie Strachan and her assistants manage a small police force who rarely see violent crime—but suddenly, there are murders. Maisy captures the moody setting, with its violent weather and suspicious birds, as well as the homophobia, racism, and superstition of the small-minded townspeople.
