Interesting reminder of life in the recent past!
The slightly-old-fashioned language, the illustrations of everyday life in the 1930's, the meticulous police procedure and an interesting mystery
Nicely paced delivery in a tone which appeared perfectly in keeping/
Enjoyable, old-fashioned police crime story, with some twists and turns.
- Ian Smith
Tedious and very dated
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.
No but his performance was good but nothing would make this interesting.
None their aren't that many
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.
