Publisher's Summary

Excellent story & performance; poor recording quality

This is, to me, one of Ngaio Marsh's best books, and it's read very well. The downside is the very poor quality of the recording, which switches sound levels here and there, to the extent that I find myself wondering if the Bluetooth connection has broken and the sound is suddenly only coming through my iPod speaker. Disappointing.
