    Excellent classic mystery in the tradition of Agatha Christie and Ngaio Marsh---good characters, nice surprise twists (more than one!) and literate writing, elegantly narrated.

A member of the family has taken them. The culprit has until midnight to confess and return the papers. A few minutes after 12 James Paradine is dead.

Coffee Lover's greatest hits:
  • Love Lies Bleeding: A Felony & Mayhem Mystery

    "More Crispin please!"

    Overall

    Please give us more of this wonderful author and the equally wonderful narrator Stephen Thorne. These books are fun, intriguing and will tax your deductive powers in figuring out the mystery. If you haven't read the Gervase Fen series, you are in for a treat.

  • The Danger Point: Miss Silver Mysteries, Book 4

    "Always love Miss Silver"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Patricia Wentworth was a contemporary of Agatha Christie but in fact, wrote her first successful mystery novels a few years before Christie published her first Miss Marple books. There are striking similarities in the two protagonists and if you love Miss Marple, you will no doubt love Miss Silver as well. Diana Bishop, as usual, does an outstanding job with the narration. I am a great fan of the "cozy" British mystery and find all of Patricia Wentworth's books to be great fun. I am thrilled that Audible is adding more of them all the time.

  • Holy Disorders: A Gervase Fen Mystery

    "Crispin Can't be Bettered!"

    Overall

    I LOVE the Gervase Fen novels - I only wish there had been more and that there were more of them on Audible. Stephen Thorne does a fabulous job of narrating. If you have never met Gervase, you owe it to yourself to get that introduction.

  • Buried for Pleasure

    "Not my favorite Crispin but still well worth it!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Buried for Pleasure to be better than the print version?

    I adore Gervase Fen - my favorite in hardcopy or audiobook, being The Moving Toy Shop. In Buried for Pleasure , Gervase does not have the same madcap, eccentric behavior that sets him apart from other mortals so I can't say it elicited the same delight as Crispin's other books but I'd rather have Gervase Fen at less than 100% than most other protagonists at their best. I only wish Crispin (actually Robert Montgomery), had written more of these books. As to whether I enjoyed the audio or hardcopy more, I always prefer the audiobooks if the narrator is good as they bring the characters to life for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gervase Fen - always!


    Have you listened to any of Philip Bird’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first experience with Bird reading one of this series but I think he does a credible job.


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

    No - I like to savor my Crispins - there are so few of them after all.

    T.S. Eliot described The Moonstone as "the first and the greatest English detective novel". The stone of the title is an enormous diamond plundered from an Indian shrine after the Siege of Seringapatam. Given to Miss Verinder on her 18th birthday, it mysteriously disappears that very night. Suspicion falls on three Indian jugglers who have been seen in the neighbourhood.

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

    Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end.

    By 1939, Richard Wentworth had been operating as the Spider for nearly six harrowing years. He had been through everything a good pulp hero could expect to face. Malevolent master villains. Sinister Asian world conquerors. Mad scientists more diabolical than anything conceived before that point. And of course since the Spider was a wanted criminal, endless police officials, uniformed cops, homicide detectives and other officers of the law had been pursuing him with single-minded fervor.

    Arthur Conan Doyle once remarked that The Adventure of the Speckled Band, first published in 1892, was his best Sherlock Holmes story. In it, a young woman, Helen Stoner, consults Holmes about her ill-tempered stepfather whom she suspects had some part in the death of her twin sister, Julia. She fears her stepfather has the same plans for her: he has forced Helen to move into the mysterious and disturbing room in which her sister died under suspicious circumstances.
