Publisher's Summary

Luke flung the light of his torch full onto the face of the immobile figure. Then he had the shock of his life. The man had no face! Where his face should have been was a sort of inhuman, uniform blank!
When a body is found at an isolated garage, Inspector Meredith is drawn into a complex investigation where every clue leads to another puzzle: was this a suicide or something more sinister? Why was the dead man planning to flee the country? And how is this connected to the shady business dealings of the garage?
This classic mystery tale is set amidst the stunning scenery of a small village in the Lake District.

Tedious and very dated

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story so very long detailed and wordy you can miss whole parts and it won't matter.

I suspect the plot would have scandalised people at the time not now.

Would you ever listen to anything by John Bude again?


Have you listened to any of Gordon Griffin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but his performance was good but nothing would make this interesting.

What character would you cut from The Lake District Murder?

None their aren't that many

Any additional comments?

I bought this book 2 years ago but never managed to get very far so i felt I couldn't return it I've honestly only finished it as I'm having work done to my house and the noise blocks parts out. The worst book I have listened to all through.
