A Woman in the Library - Sulari Gentill

Author: Sulari Gentill

Narrator: Katherine Littrell

An Australian author named Hannah shares chapters of her upcoming book with a fan named Leo who lives in the United States, who offers his opinion of the story and advises how to make the book more relatable to American readers. Set during the pandemic and amid travel restrictions, Leo helps the author by visiting various sites in Boston where her story takes place.'

The chapters she shares with Leo surround 4 strangers who meet at the Boston Public Library. As they are busy doing their own work, there rings a woman's blood-curdling scream. It is later discovered that a young woman had been found dead in a banquet room in the library. Slowly the four strangers realize that not all of them were there by chance and that one of them is the murderer.

Katherine Littrell was a natural choice as narrator. She did a wonderful job separating the different strong accents, of which there were approximately three, as well as the male and female characters. It was always easy to interpret which character she was portraying.

This was a good, solid mystery for me. There were a few moments that shocked me and that I felt truly added to the theme of the story. I was enjoying the slow burn of this audio and loved getting lost in the story, the mystery, and the characters.
