Narrator Lauren Ambrose plays The maid, Nita Prose’s creative mystery starring Molly, a maid at the Regency Grand Hotel who discovers the body of a regular guest in her suite. AudioFile host Jo Reed and Robin Whitten discuss this mystery with many possible suspects. Lauren Ambrose is exceptional at capturing this propulsive story, giving listeners a sense of all the details and emotional cues that Molly doesn’t necessarily pick up on. All clues to this murder point to Molly – can she save herself by solving the case?
