    Story
    "Taught mystery - great narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Skull Beneath the Skin to be better than the print version?

    Yes because the performance by P. De La Porta was outstanding


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Who wouldn't love Cordelia Gray!


    What does Penelope Dellaporta bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Astute characterizations


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Classic English mystery!
