The death of Professor Goodman is just the beginning of what quickly becomes an intricately tangled plot in this third installment of Sapper's Bulldog Drummond series. Veteran narrator Roy McMillan ratchets up the intensity with his spot on performance, leading Bulldog from the suspicious murder of the professor to a run-in with his arch-nemesis, Carl Peterson. As with the previous Bulldog books, The Third Round is one twist and surprise right after another and will keep listeners guessing until the very end.
In The Third Round, the third of Sapper’s Bulldog Drummond stories, Hugh Drummond has lost none of his trademark wit, charm, and confidence. In investigating the mysterious death of Professor Goodman, who holds the key to a formula for creating diamonds, he uncovers a menacing plot involving the Metropolitan Diamond Syndicate and, inevitably, his seemingly indestructible enemy, the sinister Carl Peterson.
Unexpected twists and turns are rife, and the climax sees a thrilling boat chase that makes for fantastic listening. Roy McMillan’s narration is sparkling and witty, the perfect match for Sapper.

Bulldog Drummond stories are always good fun, and Roy McMillan is a fabulous narrator for them. You can tell that he gets into the spirit of the story, understanding that it is a lighthearted adventure. While this one is entertaining, it is not of the same caliber as Bulldog Drummond or The Black Gang. Still highly recommended!
