Would you consider the audio edition of The Mystery of a Butcher's Shop to be better than the print version?

Not as well known as Agatha Christie, Josephine Tey or Dorothy Sayers; Gladys Mitchell but a classic golden age mystery writer and story teller. Featuring Dame Beatrice Lestrade Bradley, forensic psychologist and aquited murderess, the mysteries can be a little uneven. However the wonderfully excentric Dame Beatrice is always worth a visit. Gladys Mitchell uses the British countryside and fokelore to add fasinating layers. The Mys of the Butcher's Shop is one of her early and better stories. Well narrated, it was a pleasure. Gladies Mitchell wrote 66 mysteries, under her own name, hopefully many will be translated into an audio version.
