20 20 The Year in Audiobooks 2014 Mystery & Suspense BEST VOICES Whether she's embodying brilliant, neurotic, and sometimes erratic FBI research analyst Emmy Dockery in James Patterson's and David Ellis's Invisible; Assistant Prosecutor Rachel Knight and Detective Bailey Keller in Marcia Clark's The Competition; or NYPD detective Kat Donovan in Harlan Coben's Missing You, narrator January LaVoy is perfectly suited to audiobook mysteries. She's attuned to the text, keeping listeners guessing, and her deep, beautiful voice always compels. Earlier this year, she told us, "I was excited to record my first title by Harlan Coben! In Missing You, he deftly combines two of my very favorite elements—a great detective story that takes place in my home city of New York and a strong, smart female protagonist in Kat Donovan."
