A young, hard-up aristocrat decides to visit his wealthy relative in the hope of obtaining a loan. When he arrives at Greylands Court, he is warmly greeted by his cousin, but his hostess is strangely hostile. However, her husband urges the young man to pay no attention to her, and invites him to tour his menagerie. There he sees the star of his cousin's collection: a sleek, black Brazilian puma.

Just shy of an hour, but truly a magnificent story, in true ACD fashion. Recording was pretty good, but a couple areas had noticeable transitions and one spot had overlapping recordings, so the narrator read the same line twice in a row. All the same, it was a good story.
Clever plot. Interesting characters. Most unusual setting. Gripping from the beginning to the end.
The wife's veiled warnings!
David brings the characters to life in his use of dialects.
