    When the Dolphin Theatre is given to Peregrine Jay by a wealthy but mysterious patron, he is overjoyed, but puzzled. When he is also given a glove that belonged to Shakespeare, Peregrine displays it in the dockside theatre and writes a play about it, which is an enormous success. But then a murder takes place, a boy is attacked, and the glove is stolen. Could it be that oil and water don't mix? Inspector Roderick Alleyn is determined to find out.

    Carrie Brezine says: "Not tops for Marsh, but worth listening"
    "A theater mystery any Shakespeare buff will enjoy!"
    Overall

    Death at the Dolphin is a charming theater mystery featuring the very likeable director/playwrite Peregrine Jay as the protagonist, and of course Roderick Alleyn as the detective with his usual cast of supporting characters. I very much enjoyed this audiobook. It is a favorite story of mine, and James Saxon's reading only enhanced the experience. I am wondering if it was originally released as a series on the BBC's World Service radio, because the sound quality of the recording altered periodically as though it might have been originally recorded in episodes. I still gave it five stars as this did not interfere with my enjoyment of the mystery or the reading of James Saxon. He so perfectly personifies Roderick Alleyn which very much enhanced my enjoyment of the story.
