    The bank robbers were caught straight away, but in the bag there was a Concise Oxford Dictionary instead of money. Moreover, in Paul Temple's garage was the body of one of the robbers. So commences one of the strangest cases of Paul Temple's career. Before it is done he comes face to face with deeply hidden underworld figures, including the 'Master Mind'.

    Graham says: "So much more detail than in the dramatised version"

    Story

    I've heard many of the dramatised versions the BBC has produced, and particularly like Peter Coke and Marjorie Westbury as Paul and Steve, their performances conveying great mutual respect between the husband and wife team.

    I had expected a straight reading of the narrative to be less exciting than the dramatisations, but the this was not the case. Francis Durbridge has written in much more detail than has been realised in the dramatised versions which seem a little dry by comparison.

    Toby Stephens brings the narrative to life in a performance every bit as thrilling as the classic BBC versions.
