Murder is no respecter of persons.
Richard Hayward's promotion and move from the big city life to the sleepy town of Burshill, England has been shattered. Sir John Bury needs a murder solved. The results of Richard's investigation cause a ruckus when several ladies of a particular "class" become part of the inquiry. As the facts begin to unfold, they not only amaze Richard and the community of Burshill but extend all the way to the top brass of Scotland Yard.
Any additional comments?
I am completely bemused as to why Audible which has such high standards has offered this book to its discriminating readers. I don't know about the plot since I had to abandon the book because the production values were so poor. I could actually hear the pages being turned! And the reader stumbles quite frequently over pronunciations and all these errors are left in. After wincing for the tenth time or so in the first few pages, I thought perhaps this was a joke on the reader but when I skipped ahead to random points, the stumbling and page turning continued. Save your credit for anything else.

I cannot really review this book as I gave up listening very early in the story because of the dreadful narration. The reader stumbled over words, the reading was uneven and, I suppose, amateur is the only word to describe her.
