"Closer than family"
A delightful, if short, mystery recounted as if taken from one strange happening in the history of the Agora Society, and with a style similar to that of Dr.Watson in the Sherlock Holmes stories. One of the members of the Agora goes missing for a six month period, then returns unexpectedly with a companion and an ancient artifact. It is this that launches the unpleasant and murderous circumstances recorded.
Beautifully written in the first person and read with clarity and character by Wayne Farrell, this is the perfect book to gently exercise the mind whilst filling an empty hour. My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me a copy of Two Tocks before Midnight, via Audiobook Boom. It was a pleasure to hear and I hope that more such tales will follow.
