At the offices of the Hatton Garden diamond merchant, Duke and Peabody, the body of old Mr Gething is discovered beside a now empty safe. With multiple suspects, the robbery and murder is clearly the work of a master criminal and requires a master detective to solve it.

Brilliant in all ways

I have recently discovered these Inspector French books- audio books. Fantastic and this is the fourth I have enjoyed. But better listened to in order I think. But each stands alone. Brilliant narrator with an array of excellent and pleasant accents for characters. Probably more enjoyable for older readers as a bit nostalgic. Great.

One of the best

A great story from a lost age of passenger liners and romantic locations that is expertly crafted to the end. This would make an excellent movie.
