When two brothers, potential heirs, go missing on a canoe trip on the River Thames, private investigator Miles Bredon and his friend Inspector Leyland are called in to investigate what might have happened to the pair. The accumulation of evidence - including cyphers, fake photos, and drugs - leads to a much discussion and speculation, but only a recreation of events will help them to solve the mystery.
Good characters. Spare but appreciatively lovely descriptions of the river. The sequencing of the story was told well but the plot concerning the two cousins was not very credible. A map of the lock and surrounds would have helped the reader to follow the machinations of the parties (how does one do that for an audio book?) altogether enjoyable and I would read another book by this author.
