The fifth novel in Ruth Dudley Edwards' series that pokes fun at the British establishment, 'The Anglo-Irish Murders' tells of how a conference on solving the Irish problem turns to mayhem when a participant plummets to his death from a battlement.

The book is so delightfully read, and the accents so perfectly rendered, that one can listen to it over again and be as amused as one was the first time. Actually, it's better on second hearing because the persona are easier to keep straight.
I never know whether the books in this series are funny despite or because of the reactionary ravings of the author, but they are in any event so funny that even the politically correct might enjoy them. Maybe.
