Accent : British-Welsh

Performance Notes
There's a brutal murder in the small Welsh village of Gilfach. The police are clueless. With no motive and no real suspect, the investigation soon grinds to a halt. Enter Mary Anne Smith, otherwise known as Granny Smith, the 71-years-young, pipe-smoking, heavy metal-loving, chaos-causing amateur sleuth with a difference. Granny has a talent for mayhem, and soon those talents are put to good use as our intrepid pensioner starts the unravel the case, which finds her provoking Chief Inspector Miskin as she comes up against a full scale police investigation, proving that you're never too old to make a nuisance of yourself and that 71 is actually the new 21. Murder's never been so much fun. ©2012 Gary Martin Dobbs (P)2016 Gary Martin Dobbs

She also never leaves any doubt about who is speaking, differentiating the characters effortlessly." The Giddy Death of the Gays and Strange Demise of Straights - Audible review -Jeremy Moran "Well narrated by Fiona Thraille with well thought out and enjoyable character voices and excellent inflections and characterizations." Granny Smith Investigates - Audible Review - Terri, U.S. "Fiona Thraille not only narrates the book, she brought it alive... Every character sounded just as fleshed out as the writing made them feel...superlative narration" (Engines of Empathy - Amazon Reviewer Author Tonia Brown) "To hear one's story read aloud is a truly amazing thing, especially when done so wonderfully. Fiona put her heart and soul into the reading, changing her voice to depict the various characters; both male and female. Her take on Morgan is exactly as the Air Chief had always imagined when writing the book." - (Witchfire - Ron Fortier, writer)
