Publisher's Summary

When Sir Charles Airdrie, owner of Dreams Castle in the Scottish Highlands, gives young Vernon Lathaby - a flamboyant young exhibitionist - permission to search the Isle of Erran for buried treasure, Lathaby takes along his tough hanger-on, ‘Digger Henderson’. However, cautious of being swindled by his partner, Lathaby takes out insurance to protect him, so Miles Bredon is dispatched by the suspicious Incredible Insurance Company to keep a watchful eye on proceedings.

Can't get past reader.

Would you try another book from Ronald Knox and/or Barnaby Edwards?

The unnatural staccato cadence of the reader made this unpleasant to listen to. I gave up after 45 minutes.

Would you be willing to try another one of Barnaby Edwards’s performances?

No.
