    This story always reminds me of my childhood and while Mr. Matthau dosen't read it the way my father did, his reading is enjoyable replacement.

    When Aline Griffith was born in Pearl River, New York, in 1923, one might have guessed from her exceptional beauty that a career as an actress or model might be in her future. Few would have imagined that twenty-one years later, she would find herself in Spain as a deep-cover OSS agent, infiltrating the highest levels of Spanish society, or that five years later still, she would marry a Spanish grandee and become one of the most watched, most admired, most fascinating women of international society. This is the story of Aline, Countess of Romanones, a story of courage, beauty and success that is far more exciting than any fictionalized thriller.

    Story

    Why shouldn't I want to fight for my country? Aline asked that question to her blind date one night. Turned out he was John Derby, a director of OSS and so Aline was offered a chance to become an OSS agent.

    The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we've got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery.

    filled with many varied items this collection has stories that I look forward to reading every year and some I had never heard before but all top class authors. Mr Harrison has a pleasant light tenor.
    The only thing I disliked was not being able to easily find a specific story.

  • Busman's Honeymoon (Dramatised)

    Murder is hardly the best way for Lord Peter and his bride, the famous mystery writer Harriet Vane, to start their honeymoon. It all begins when the former owner of their newly acquired estate is found quite nastily dead in the cellar. And what Lord Peter had hoped would be a very private and romantic stay in the country soon turns into a most baffling case, what with the mis-spelled ‘notise’ to the milkman and the intriguing condition of the dead man: there wasn’t any blood on his smashed skull and he had six hundred pounds in his wallet.

    Story
    What did you love best about Busman's Honeymoon (Dramatised)?

    Or a romantic honeymoon interrupted by the discovery of a corpse either way it is an enjoyable story with just enough comedy to leaven the mystery


    What other book might you compare Busman's Honeymoon (Dramatised) to and why?

    The stories, I think come close to this are other the stories starring Lord Peter and Harriet Vane or Agatha Chritie's heroes Tommy and Tuppence in 'Partners in Crime'
