Another wonderful piece of writing

A great piece of writing to listen to - if that isn't too much of a juxtaposition! Her usual high standard of story telling told by Peter Carmichael & Co., wonderfully!
I will now continue with the next one....

Classic 1920s crime

A vintage 1920s crime story, pretty faithfully adapted as a BBC Radio series with Ian Carmichael and Peter Jones as Wimsey and Bunter. A satisfying mystery with outstanding actors and sound effects,
I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this! I save my new Audiobooks for when I'm wide awake, but this has become a favourite for listening to at night when I can't sleep ...I'm like a child with this as my go to bedtime story.

Excellent!

I bought this on a whim, mostly because I love Ian Carmichael's performances in the Wodehouse dramatizations and audiobooks and when I heard the 'sample' audio for this I couldn't resist.

It was excellent! The story was good (and not as implausible, plot-wise, as many radio mystery series of the period), the adaptation great, and Ian Carmichael as Lord Peter Wimsey is perfect.

I particularly liked the humour - you don't get many laugh-out-loud moments in murder mysteries of this era, but this was like Jeeves and Wooster meets Paul Temple, and I don't think you can do better than that.

Highly recommended (and I bought the other 2 dramatizations within 48 hours of listening to this one - and loved them too).
