These stories are pure escapism, and reveal so much about the era they were written, old fashioned and frequently sexist (the wife, Stevie, so often is the one who picks up the clues, or works out the motives not because she is smart you understand, but because she uses her "intuition"). Book after book, they find people, half dead, groaning in the bushes, bombs in car, and poison in drinks. The working classes are "the salt of the earth", women have "pasts" and dry martini's are to die for. And yet, and yet, theres something about the stories that is really relaxing and fun, or as Paul Temple might say "by Timothy they are good"............. I downloaded the first of these dramatisations when I was going through a particularly stressful time, i didnt want gritty reality, i wanted to be completely transported to another time and place.....................I am now on my 5th Paul Temple story, and love the escapism they bring.................

Intrepid Paul Temple and his wife Steve get embroiled in another adventure that takes them on a journey of murder and intrigue. Keeps you entertained and guessing until the very end! Master of Mystery is Francis Durbridge.
One of many quality stories for a lost bygone age

Great as always
A brand new mystery and I think it was an awesome one. The story line is great, thrilling until the end. The characters are all played with great emotions and are just inviting to follow their story! Like all the other Paul Temple stories I couldn't resist to listen to this mystery from beginning to end without interruption.

Good Hardy Boys adventure for grown-ups
Very enjoyable mystery drama. A sophisticated English married couple, 1930s-1940s era going through murder and mayhem with calm and cool, and this was like a Hardy Boys book for adults. Lots of action, sinister characters, and plot twists (some very predictable). If you're looking for the "Nick and Nora" wit of "The Thin Man" you won't find it here, but it's still enjoyable. Note: the body count rivals any Rambo movie. But, it's a rollicking enjoyable mystery that almost outlives most of the characters, and the acting and production quality are very good. This was the first "Paul Temple" adventure I've heard and I did download another right after finishing this one. Great to listen to while gardening or hiking.
