This book works well as a stand-alone for those of us not familiar with the original series by Dorothy Sayer. The author introduces us to the main characters, a brief history of their relationship toget5her and also gives us a new Lord Peter mystery.
I am a great reader (listener) of British novels and watcher of British documentaries. I therefore have had the opportunity to listen to many British accents and narrators. I was so impressed with the performance of Edward Peterbridge for he so perfectly nailed the accent of the British aristocracy of that time. Speakers with this accent do have a tendency to modulate the volume of their voice which makes them a little difficult to hear at times. I cannot criticize a magnificent performance for this minor difficulty inflicted on the listener.
It was certainly was funny at times.
After reading this book I became interested in Dorothy Sayer. I read three of her books. Fans of Sayer will consider this blasphemy but I preferred Walsh. Sorry.
This book rates among the best audiobooks I've listened to.
You will fall in love with Maggie and Scott.
I really enjoyed his performance in the Sandman Slim series but this performance is my favorite. MacLeod is very talented and he creates memorable characters.
I cried and laughed but this book is also action packed. At certain parts of the book I wasn't able to sit still, I paced the floor.
I'm so happy that I found Robert Crais at this point in his career. He has written so many books that I look forward to reading or listening to.This is a message to the author: please give us more of Scott, Maggie and MacLeod.
