Publisher's Summary

From 1938 to 1969 crime novelist and detective Paul Temple, together with his Fleet Street journalist wife Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular serials. They inhabited a sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women were chic and the men wore cravats, a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Paul's help with his latest tricky case. This time, the case involves the Fergusons, who Paul and Steve meet while on the way home from New York. They are flying to England to visit their son Richard, a student at Oxford University. But at the airport, there is shocking news: Richard has been murdered, found shot dead in his room. The only clues are a postcard from Harrogate signed 'Jonathan', and Richard's missing gold signet ring. But who is Jonathan, and what is his connection to the dead man? It is up to Paul to find the answer.

Peter Coke and Marjorie Westbury are the best pairing as Paul and Steve Temple. Typical Durbridge plot with plenty of deaths and plot twists. Enjoy!

Fabulous Enterainment

I love Stevie & Paul Temple. Such fun toffs who go around hunting
out the latest criminals the only way the Temples can & this is with
good old fashioned Swarv & panash. Cocktails & footmen galore, these
two will not only have you glued to your seats for several hours, but
will give you hours of good clean laughs & have you wondering which
of the many characters is not telling the truth.

All the characters are well played & Paul will have you smirking at times with the way he cheekily handles his wife. Great fun & I hope they make more.

Professionally produced full cast & beautifully directed, these two
sleuths are so entertaining I bought the full collection.
