Paul Temple and the Margo Mystery

The coat was expensive. A woman's cashmere coat with the maker's name 'Margo' prominently displayed, it was dropped into the back of Paul Temple's car - possibly by the people responsible for the kidnapping of his wife. A little while later a second 'Margo' coat surfaced - literally. Sodden and stained, it was worn by a woman who had been brutally strangled and thrown into the Thames.

    "Very fine narration makes this a great listen!"

    One needs to understand and appreciate the time and place in which the Paul Temple character was created before writing negative reviews. So, I am writing to balance the scales.

    These are not Christie, Marsh, or Sayers and they are not intended to be. Created for radio drama, Paul Temple is very entertaining. I think the mysteries are good, and the narration, in this case by Toby Stephens, is marvelous.

    I have also listened to the radio dramas and they are fun and very entertaining.

    "Lovely reader; annoying story"

    Toby Stephens, with his remarkable deep-throated voice and lively characterizations, almost makes this grating narrative palatable. But the character of Steve, the wife, is such a silly, stupid woman, it's embarrassing to any thinking reader. She cowers at danger, never understands what her husband Paul is thinking and hinders the investigation at almost every turn. What's worse, she gets drunk on one beer -- and she is supposed to be a former Fleet Street journalist! Compared to women in other crime-fighting duos of the 1930s and '40s, notably Nora Charles, Steve is a weak pill indeed.
    Still, Toby Stephens... nice. The three stars are all for him.
