Publisher's Summary

Truth is rarely pure and never simple...
Selchester Castle in 1953 sits quiet and near-empty, its corridors echoing with glories of the past.
Or so it seems to intelligence officer Hugo Hawksworth, wounded on a secret mission and now reluctantly assuming an altogether less perilous role at Selchester.
The Castle's faded grandeur hides a web of secrets and scandals - the Earl has been missing for seven years, lost without a trace since the night he left his guests and walked out into a blizzard.
When a skeleton is uncovered beneath the flagstones of the Old Chapel, the police produce a suspect and declare the case closed.
Hugo is not convinced. With the help of the spirited Freya Wryton, the Earl's niece, he is drawn back into active service, and the ancient town of Selchester is dragged into the intrigues and conspiracies of the Cold War era.
With a touch of Downton Abbey, a whisper of Agatha Christie and a nod to Le Carré, A Man of Some Repute is the first book in this delightfully classic and witty murder mystery series.

Michael Page Is Perfect Narrator

I could listen to Michael Page reading his long monthly shopping list, he is perfect for narrating. We have many audible books read by Page of various genre and he never fails to pack in a full dollop of a show. His voice projection may not be for everyone, we love it and listen every evening to some audio by Mr Page and we roar with laughter!

I downloaded A Man of Some Repute as it was a Daily Deal and only a couple of pounds. I read a few pages but I was not particularly enthralled by the material and then I noticed the book is available on audio narrated by page. So pleased I bought this version as I much enjoy this book read to me rather than me read it. Not a story to get excited about, very average and if it was not for liking the narrator, I would not have listened all the way through to the end.
