    A Murder of Quality, set in the early 1960s, sees George Smiley investigating a murder in a public school. When the wife of one of the masters is found bludgeoned to death, Smiley, out of loyalty to an old friend, agrees to look into the case. But his investigation raises a multitude of questions. Who could have hated Stella Rode enough to kill her? Why was her dog put down shortly before the murder? And what did Mad Janie see on that fatal night?

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Murder of Quality (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

    This is a dramatization of the story. I have neither read nor listened to the original story.


    What about the narrators???s performance did you like?

    There are no people like the Brits for putting books to TV, radio, or other cinematic endeavor. They stay true to the author, unlike Hollywood folk who have the brass to think they can improve on the original. True to form, this cast is excellent! As always, the BBC has done an excellent job!

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Any additional comments?

    I am sorry that other reviewers were unable to get beyond "yuck, it is a romance". Of course it is; it is a story about alchemy - the metaphysical marriage of chemicals to create other compounds. I enjoyed the story very much. It reminds me of struggles within my own life - searching for my "magic", accepting myself as both dark and light, learning that love is far more than lust, and struggling to communicate with and to trust a life partner. There is a lot of wisdom in the book - if one is willing to go beneath the surface.
