Publisher's Summary

Marryatt (the clergyman), Carmichael (the retired don), Reeves (the former member of the military intelligence), and Gordon (the vacationing golfer) are playing golf in Paston Oatvile when Reeves slices his drive from the third tee. In searching for the ball, they come upon the dead body of Mr. Brotherhood below the railroad viaduct. When they find Brotherhood’s hat 15 yards away from the body, they suspect dirty work is afoot, and so the foursome sets out to solve his murder.
A witty, clever and thoroughly delightful classic British mystery story, The Viaduct Murder is the first of Ronald Knox’s detective novels and the only one that does not include Miles Bredon.

A Slightly Academic Who-Dunnit

Certainly this book was well read and it kept my attention. I was not familiar with Ronald Knox's work before and I look forward to exploring more of his work. I do not want to spoil your enjoyment by revealing the plot. I would, however, note that there is something of a dry, academic feel to this book as the evidence is reviewed over and over again as theory is piled on top of theory. That said, I shall certainly listen to it again and, I suspect enjoy it all the more the second time around!
