I listened to “A Madness of Sunshine” by Nalini Singh performed by Saskia Maarleveld. It’s a great story and Maarleveld is phenomenal. Her voice range is amazing.

Singh was raised and lives in New Zealand which adds authenticity to her story. Her descriptions of the villagers and landscapes make the story. This is a crime fiction story set in a tiny and remote village. As with all crime mystery stories, it’s the pacing as well as the characters that involve the reader/listener.

A brief synopsis is that a local woman returns to her village that she promised herself she’d never return to. She got out as a teen with her music talent. Unfortunately, her husband dies, which alone rocks her life. And then she discovers he had a pregnant mistress which drove her to take refuge in her remote hometown.

Soon after her return, a beautiful young girl goes missing. This girl was about to escape the small village with her photography talent. Her disappearance brings back the unsolved murders of hikers that occurred decades earlier while the woman was a teen. Soon there is worries that the serial killer is back.

I did enjoy listening to Maarleveld’s voice while she told the story. She added to the intrigue and mystery. I highly recommend the audible version.
