Summary

Slumped on a seat under an oak tree is old Sampson Warrenby, with a bullet through his head.
Everybody in the village is ready to tell Chief Inspector Hemingway who did it. Could the murderer have been the dead man's niece? Or perhaps it was the other town solicitor? The couple at the farm had a guilty secret - what was it? And why is it someone else actually wants to be the prime suspect?
Add to this the fact that Warrenby was blackmailing someone, and Hemingway has his work cut out for him.

Dreadful narration

What disappointed you about Detection Unlimited?

I read and enjoyed these stories many years ago and so looked forward to listening to them, however, the narration is so bad I could not listen to the end. I believe they are produced in Australia and it is hard to imagine that the producers could not find there an actor capable of giving voice to characters with recognisable English accents or capable of speaking in a less ponderous and monotone way.

Good story, sorry narrator

This is one of my favorite of Heyer's mystery stories. It has wonderful characters and a mystery that keeps you guessing. Unfortunately Ulli Birve's narration leaves the story flat. She seems to think that masculine. voices. are. all. uninflected. and. stilted. I'm sorry there isn't a negative rating for the narrator.

Just so-so

Would you be willing to try another book from Georgette Heyer? Why or why not?

I enjoy her Regency novels and some of her mysteries. The performance made it difficult to appreciate this book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ulli Birvé’s performances?

No. Stilted, difficult to distinguish the different characters.
