One of the Appleby crime novels. In a West Country village Priscilla Pringle, writer of clerical detective stories, becomes involved in one of her own ingeniously constructed plots. Luckily Sir John Appleby, retired Metropolitan Police Commissioner, is on hand to sort out fact from fiction.

Avid listener on my daily commute!
Yes, due to the fine performance of the narrator, who has a seemingly infinitely flexible voice and brought every eccentric character vividly to life.
Yes, although i was forced to divide it up over several days.
Not much happens in this story! So don't purchase or expend a credit on it if you require a genuinely hair-raising, corpse-strewn, edge-of-your-seat experience. This book is for anglophiles who are lovers of language, gentle humor, and character-driven mysteries.
