Superb Campion

Best of them all, I believe! Excellent narration, a wonderfully convoluted but not improbable plot.

Finally, a mystery

This is the fourth Campion book. It is also the first one that is truly a mystery. Despite a stereotypical cast of English eccentrics, the plot is engaging and the solution worthy of Christie.

Marvelous Golden Era Gem

Classic mystery: you know you have been given all the clues, you know all your suspects.

Still this book managed too keep me in suspense right until the end. One of those Should've knowns!

Loved the Story

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

This was my first Albert Campion Mystery and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It has all the elements of a classic english crime story and if you love that kind of thing, you're in for a treat.

Welche drei Worte charakterisieren Ihrer Meinung nach am besten die Lesung von David Thorpe?

The only thing which kind of damped my enjoyment of this otherwise excellent reading was the interpretation of the female voices, especially the elderly aunt. It was too over the top and the high pitched voice was getting on my nerves. I really couldn't listen to what "she" was saying and was just hoping she would stop soon. Luckily the aunt hadn't too much stage time.
