John Creasey wrote this classic crime series under the pseudonym Anthony Morton, one of 28 aliases under which Creasey prolifically practiced his craft. In this audiobook version of The Baron Again, Carl Prekopp performs the ongoing story of John Mannering - aka the Baron - in his appealing and resonant English accent, honed for the audio stage over years with BBC Radio.

Forced to resume his gentleman cracksman activities in order to find out, he finds himself suspected of complicity. In doing so, he encounters Kate Loffatt, known to her criminal associates as ‘The Cat’…
