Summary

First, there is a skeleton in a dinner jacket. Then, a corpse in a golden aeroplane. After another body is found, Albert Campion nearly makes a fourth. Both the skeleton and the corpse have died with suspicious convenience for Georgia Wells, a monstrous but charming actress with a raffish entourage. Georgia's best friend just happens to be Valentine, a top couturier and Campion's sister. In order to protect Valentine, Campion must unravel a story of blackmail and ruthless murder.

Disappointing version

Awful abridged version that destroys the original plot and characterization. Read far too quickly. Really disappointing.

Lovely abridged presentation - Mr. Franks did all the characters justice. Now I want to go back for the complete version!

Too Fast!

I thought, at first, that the ipod was playing this book at a faster speed than normal. It is impossible to listen to and to follow the story - it's just too much work to be enjoyable.
