    Available to download for the very first time, the fantastic Inspector Appleby series by celebrated crime writer Michael Innes. Sir John Appleby dines one evening at Allington Park, the Georgian home of his acquaintance Owain Allington, who is new to the area. The evening comes to an end but just as Appleby is leaving, they find a dead man - electrocuted in the son et lumihre box which had been installed in the grounds.

    Kathleen says: "quiet satire"
    "Why didn't they bother to edit it?"

    Would you try another book from Michael Innes and/or Gordon Dulieu?

    I love Michael Innes but did not like the performance by Gordon Dulieu


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the narrator was not able to convey different voices well. For example, in a conversation between Appleby and his wife Judith, it was not possible to tell from the voice which character was speaking! There were also mistakes in the reading which were not edited out. I would guess ALL narrators make the occasional flub, and this one just corrected himself and went right on, probably expecting that someone would snip out the bad bit. But they never did.
