Publisher's Summary

No death could have been more welcome than Evan Morgan's, or more fitting for the Welcome Home celebrations in the village of Llanddewi.
For Morgan had spent the war making money and enemies down in the Vale of Glamorgan with about equal facility. In fact, on the night, it seemed as if a whole posse of murderers had beaten a path to the door of the Manor House.
It is left to the ingenuity of Sir Richard Cherrington, an eminent but slightly eccentric archaeologist with a penchant for amateur detection on a visit from Cambridge, to solve this intricate puzzle of motives and alibis.

A new "period" sleuth

Would you consider the audio edition of Welcome Death to be better than the print version?

Well read, gripping, atmospheric - as good as a book - probably.

What did you like best about this story?

Good post-WW2 setting. Believable central character (straight from "The Cambridge Murders").
Lots of red-herrings and a long run-in to the murder.

Which character – as performed by Peter Wickham – was your favourite?

None stands out - good variation of tone and accent added to this Welshman's enjoyment greatly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Certainly a book that my wife returned to at the soonest opportunity - couldn't wait to see whether we had guessed the killer from a long short-list!

Any additional comments?

We await Glyn Daniel's next book with anticipation.
