Much loved story - narration dubious
part of this story was on TV about 40 years ago .
in the top half - its a good story and well read.
As with many Audio books, the end is ruined by the production company announcing who they are IMMEDIATELY at the end of the story, thus one cannot remember how the story ended, and my end of story meditation is ruined.
I liked the Vicar - his encounter with the villain was brave,
I may go back and read more of this series.
