    Ruby Lennox was conceived grudgingly by Bunty and born while her father, George, was in the Dog and Hare in Doncaster. Bunty had never wanted to marry George, but he was all that was left. She really wanted to be Vivien Leigh, swept off to America by a romantic hero. But here she was, stuck in a flat above the pet shop beneath York Minster, with sensible Patricia, aged five, greedy Gillian who refused to be ignored, and Ruby, who tells the memorable, witty, and eventful story of The Family.

    I enjoyed this immensely; to point where I was taking longer routes to home and work to prolong my listening time. I loved the reader. I wish audible had more of this author's books.

    Una estupenda obra de suspenso y misterio policíaco, esta novela se desarolla en los finales del siglo XIX dentro del marco de la Exposición Universal realizada en París en 1889. La historia comienza con el misterioso asesinato de un detective privado, que asiste a una convención de detectives de todo el mundo, organizada para exponer sus diferentes métodos de investigación utilizados en sus diferentes países de origen.

    Mario says: "Buena historia clásica de detectives"
    "Interesting story, great reader"
    Overall

    I am an intermediate Spanish student I had been slowly working my way through this book for about a month when I noticed that there was a recorded version. I read and listened at the same time and quickly found my reading ability to be improving greatly. I strongly recommend this method to anyone who wants to improve their ability to understand spoken Spanish and their ability to read Spanish. I wish Audible had a greater selection of Spanish novels. By this I mean novels written originally in Spanish, not translations. Why no M??rquez, Llosa, etc? By the way this reader is great. His Spanish is beautifully clear.

    Alberto Sanjuán, antiguo novio de Lola Lago, es acusado del asesinato de su jefe Ignacio Zabaleta, director de la más importante empresa de publicidad del país. Todas las pruebas le acusan directamente, pero Alberto insiste en su inocencia. Lola le ayudará a demostrarlo.

    Overall

    I found this an excellent way to increase my understanding of spoken Spanish. It stretched my ability to understand just enough but not so much that I was frustrated. It was also quite amusing, so that it was able to keep my attention. Having the text available was very important.
