    *Starred Review* Secrets and passion drive Australian author Morton's latest, which flashes between the present, as matriarch Dorothy Nicholson lies on her deathbed, and 1941 and 1961. Dorothy, Jimmy, and Vivien met in wartime London, and the consequences of their friendship ripple through generations. Murder, conspiracies, and switched identities haunt the plot, with daughter Laurel (who, as a youngster, witnessed her mother killing a man) trying to unravel the twisted skeins. The story is told from the perspectives of Laurel, Dorothy, Vivien, and Jimmy, requiring Lee (also the reader of Morton's The Distant Hours) to switch accents and viewpoints. Her sense of timing when revealing secrets is impeccable. Dorothy, who lost her family in the Coventry Blitz in WWII, speaks in British-accented tones enriched and mellowed by loss. As a young adult, Dorothy seems wistful, and dreamy. Working-class London war photographer Jimmy is reflected in gruff British tones, yet his speech patterns soften as he expresses sympathy for his London photography subjects. Vivien, an Australian orphan, rich heiress, and unhappy wife, is most complex. Her childhood voice has a rich Australian timbre muted by unhappiness and fear. As the war takes its toll, the three friends encounter the devils that haunt them, and Laurel must reconcile the truths she discovers. Morton and Lee are a perfect combination for this whodunit. The title is distributed by Brilliance Audio. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
