Publisher's Summary

After an evening of friendly darts and vintage brandy, a distinguished, although amorous, barrister is in no condition to drive - or walk. The poor fellow's expired, leaving one less lawyer in the world. Everyone in the cozy pub swears that the untimely death was caused by a dart that punctured the victim's finger. But to Inspector Roderick Alleyn, the "accident" was really a case of murder.

Good story, abysmal sound quality

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

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.


How could the performance have been better?

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.


Any additional comments?

If you haven't already try 'Overture to Death' instead.
