The Detective's Wife Audiobook

The Detective's Wife

In "The Detective's Wife", Tudor Jenks, perhaps having had a bit too much of all-knowing and near omniscient sleuths, seems to be having his own joke on Conan Doyle and his followers. This audiobook takes you back into the parlor of one such brilliant and undefeatable detective, who brags to his wife that the logical and mathematical male mind is superior to the disorganized and emotional mind of the female. His wife disagrees.

    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    Story
    "A short satirical take on great detectives"

    If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan, or maybe a bit tired of him, this short radio drama is for you. Playing of the wit of a wife against the investigative skills of her great detective husband, Tudor Jenks successfully makes fun of the wonderful logical world of deduction.

    While the story might be a bit dated, it leaves you with a chuckle. Jenks' point comes over loud and clear, "Do not underestimate those of a different gender persuasion!"
