Audible Editor Reviews

English actor Gareth Armstrong gives a marvelous performance of the crime thriller A Case for Inspector West by the prolific novelist John Creasey. His dulcet voice heightens the prose - he is able to create an atmosphere that oscillates from genial to sinister with a remarkable ease. In Armstrong’s delivery, each character comes alive in a distinctive fashion. This is a riveting tale of a ruthless killer who targets men driving expensive cars. Kill the man, take his car, burglarize his home. Is Roger West of Scotland Yard up to solving the case?

Publisher's Summary

Ruthless. He was as cold-blooded a killer as Roger West had ever encountered - and his modus operandi had the simplicity of absolute genius. Find a man with an expensive car, ask him if he's wealthy, then kill him. Take his keys and car, and go rob his home. Simple. Or was it?

John Creasey (September 17, 1908-June 9, 1973) was born in Southfields, Surrey, England and died in New Hall, Bodenham, Salisbury Wiltshire, England. He was the seventh of nine children in a working-class home. He became an English author of crime thrillers, published in excess of 600 books under 20+ different pseudonyms. He invented many famous characters who would appear in a whole series of novels. Probably the most famous of these is Gideon of Scotland Yard, the basis for the television program Gideon's Way but others include Department Z, Dr. Palfrey, The Toff, Inspector Roger West, and The Baron (which was also made into a television series). In 1962, Creasey won an Edgar Award for Best Novel, from the Mystery Writers of America, for Gideon's Fire, written under the pen name J. J. Marric. And in 1969 he was given the MWA's highest honor, the Grand Master Award.

    "Light relief"

    Quite a gentle police story, set in the 50s (I think). Dated - but quite acceptable as light relief from heavier, more tense novels.
    Quite amusing to hear some of the early language and clipped tones of the middle class characters.
