Good story, abysmal sound quality
As with all Inspector Alleyn mysteries this is a charmingly written tale full of witty dialogue and engaging characters. The mystery is perhaps not the best of the series but the situations carry it along and it is quite enjoyable.
It is utterly impossible to imerse yourself in the story telling when the recording keeps making strange twanging noises and the narrator suddenly sounds like they are in a giant tin can! Nadia May does a good job with the material but is sadly let down by the sound quality.
If you haven't already try 'Overture to Death' instead.
