Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Gavin's rendering of Kate is exceptional, along with her tackling of various German accents. Listeners will find themselves tingling with fright as they are stalked alongside Kate. AudioFile on Hunter's Moon
Marguerite Gavin has found a voice for Kate that captures--without being grating--a voice frazzled and nearly silenced in the violent struggle that caused Kate to leave her job as an investigator for the Anchorage D.A.'s office. AudioFile on A Cold Day for Murder
Reader Marguerite Gavin has a sonorous voice, rich and full of emotion; she easily delivers the wry humor that is so much a part of a Kate Shugak book. Gavin moves smoothly from accent to accent without hesitation, recalling multiple characters perfectly and bringing to life a main character you wouldn't mind being snowed in with for a few days. AudioFile on The Singing of the Dead
Gavin does justice to the complex character of Kate and those who enter her sphere...[her] rather gravelly voice reflects Kate's untamed nature. Booklist on The Singing of the Dead
Featuring highly original and well-drawn characters, the novel is yet another triumph for author Stabenow and an excellent platform for narrator Marguerite Gavin to showcase her talent. Her emotionally charged and intimate reading moves seamlessly from suspenseful scenes to Kate's domestic drama with her foster son and state trooper boyfriend. Through every plot twist, Gavin keeps listeners tightly hooked and empathetic toward to the characters. Publishers Weekly
Gavin's multi-voiced reading is quite fine. She handles the Native American characters realistically and reveals Kate Shugak to be the painstaking, uncompromising character readers have come to expect. KLIATT on A Taint in the Blood
“Gavin superbly masters the pronunciation of native names and places as well as the cadence of native speakers, making this title an exquisite listening pleasure. AudioFile, Earphones Award winner
