When portrait-painter and occasional detective, Charles Honeybath, pays a visit to his old friend Edwin Lightfoot, there are a few surprises in store. Edwin's irksome wife is packing her bags, while Edwin is indulging in an eccentric game of pretence- acting the part of a long-dead petty criminal named Flannel Foot. Days later, when Edwin disappears, Honeybath finds himself with a mystery to solve and some decisions to make about his life- will he be lured by his intended haven?

3 hours before getting to the crux of the crime!
So much rambling amongst characters who were characterless. Don't hold your breath waiting for Appleby to appear for fear of expiring. I couldn't be bothered to find out 'who dunnit"!
This is the 6th book I have had but although the others were long winded with rather too much descriptive writing (including the overuse of Latin phrases) at least there was a decent lead up to the crime. I will not buy any more of the Appleby books although, sadly, 1920's to 1940's setting crime books are limited.
Lovely voice & eminently suitable. Sorry he had such an awful story
Utter disappointment & boredom.
I cannot find that Audible still has the 'return' option but this is one I would happily return
