    What made the experience of listening to One Corpse Too Many the most enjoyable?

    Excellant narrater


    Any additional comments?

    The main problem I had with this, and every other audio book I've listened to, is that the narrater puts the wrong emphasis on a particular word or passage. I'm quite sure the author did not intend that emphasis in the given passage. Also, the picture on the cover of this audio book is HORRENDOUS. I would NEVER have listened to this book if the picture was all I had to go on.

The stranger, Brat Farrar, has been carefully coached on Patrick’s mannerisms, appearance and every significant detail of Patrick’s early life, up to his 13th year when he disappeared and was thought to have drowned himself.
