These Paul Temple books are basically 'MacMillan & Wife' meets Agatha Christie: Famous/well-connected 40-something husband, plucky fashionable younger wife, multiple deaths, implausible 'coincidences' - and solving the crime without using a shred of actual forensic evidence.
(For example, I've listened to several of these in the past week or two, and not ONCE has anyone talked about dusting for fingerprints.)
However, once you get over these hurdles - which, after all, are common to all mystery/thrillers, especially of this time period - this is a great series. Well-acted, well-produced...sure, if you listen to a whole bunch in a row like I have, you start to see how formulaic they are, but that doesn't make them less enjoyable.
Recommended for anyone who likes mysteries or radio plays.
