Publisher's Summary

In a thrilling case that takes Paul and Steve to exotic Egypt, Paul Temple is called in to investigate a mysterious murder. The twisting trail takes them from London to the back streets and nightclubs of Cairo. From 1938 to 1969, crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and his Fleet Street journalist wife, Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular serials. They inhabit a sophisticated, well-dressed world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women are chic and the men still wear cravats - and where Sir Graham Forbes of Scotland Yard always needs Paul's help with a tricky case. Now, Paul Temple is being brought into the 21st century in this brand-new eight-part recording of a lost-archive Paul Temple mystery, starring Crawford Logan and Gerda Stevenson.

Jolly Good!

Another Paul Temple mystery which are so sweet and formulaic. You know who the bad guy is as soon as you meet them but Paul Temple, Steve and the Police bumble about for a bit and have terribly exciting adventures. I love the music and the very quaint accents. Fantastic escapist fun which really helps to pass the time when painting the house. I can't wait for more tokens to arrive so I can download more. Also great to have on when the kids are around as no swearing or adult themes, it is just a very sweet and innocent mystery story.

I love to listen to these on a cold lazy Sunday afternoon as I can snuggle up & relax to a charming good detective story for over 3 hours. These are pure joy as you follow the husband & wife team to find the murderer. Set in UK 50' & 60's these are excellently produced with a fantastic sound track of guns, parties, fires, speedboats & all sorts of exciting goings on. I bought the full collection. Steve & Paul are becoming like old friends. Love it ❤️
