Publisher's Summary

Available to download for the very first time, the fantastic Inspector Appleby series by celebrated crime writer Michael Innes.
Sir John Appleby dines one evening at Allington Park, the Georgian home of his acquaintance Owain Allington, who is new to the area. His curiosity is aroused when Allington mentions his nephew and heir to the estate, Martin Allington, whose name Appleby recognises.
The evening comes to an end but just as Appleby is leaving, they find a dead man - electrocuted in the son et lumihre box which had been installed in the grounds. Legendary character Inspector John Appleby of Scotland Yard inspired a lasting vogue for donnish detective fiction. Innes's detective novels are playfully highbrow and rich in allusions to English literature and to Renaissance art.

Dragged on and on

The story seem to drag on and on without much excitement or action . Also the narrator was unfortunately not very expressive and I would not listen to any other story that was narrated by him . This is one of the few audiobooks where I couldn't wait till it finished as I was hoping it would improve the further I got , but alas it was not to be .... oh well , back to my much beloved Agatha Christie audios.
