The investigation was relatively simple: a multimillionaire rare books collector had reported the theft of eight volumes, worth a half million dollars. From a locked library. To which he has the only key.

BORING! I guess you get what you pay for, and audio books are no exception. I had read (listened to) another "Nameless Detective" book which was pretty good, so I expected this to be up there as well. No such luck. I have even tried to fast forward, hoping to get to the "good part," but finally gave up.
I would also warn about getting the BBC audio version of another in the series, "Hardcase" as the narrator whispers for several of the characters's voices and the volume changes throughout the entire book. Very annoying and disruptive to the flow of the story line. (Which in a printed form would be pretty worth checking out of your library).
great book, the narrator does a great job with this book. keeps you listening till end, its only 7 or so hours but it gets to the point not dragged out at all. another thing i also enjoyed was that there is more than one mystery going on at once, in which the narrator switches back and forth. i recommend this tittle for any and all mystery buffs.. its also cheap to buy, rather than use a credit that u can save for a more expensive tittle.
