I am extremely fond of the Robert Amiss/Jack Troutbeck mysteries and my favorite way to experience them is through audio. I have spent many pleasant hours enjoying their exploits in the past through the talent of Bill Wallis, so I was unsure whether I would like Wanda McCaddon's narration as much. I am happy to say that she does a very nice job of Killing The Emperors. I really only have one complaint about the narration. Someone forgot to brief Ms. McCaddon on the proper British pronounciation of Featherstonhaugh (a club featured in both "Killing The Emperors" and an earlier entry in the series "Clubbed To Death") Strangely, it is pronounced Fanshaw. A minor thing to be sure, but it did grate on me. But I digress. I thought "Killing The Emperors" was great fun as well as being very instructive about the world of conceptual art. I would recommend "Killing The Emperors" to anyone who enjoys mysteries with memorable characters and snarky humor.
