Fun and short- just what I needed!

This was two funny, basically short stories, that passed an hour and a half of dreary car driving time perfectly! Originally thought it would be for the kids, since it was rather short. But it was above the head of my 10-year-old and the accents threw off my 13-year-old (both antsy boys) However I loved it! There are only two actors, but they create a number of distinct characters and voices even though all of the characters had a variance of British accents.

The mysteries themselves are fairly simple and not difficult to solve quite a bit sooner than the detective in the story, but it was still fun listening to the banter between the two journalists who solved each mystery.

If you want a couple of short stories to pass some time, nothing too heavy, nothing too serious, nothing too lengthy, this is a perfect fit. And I am sure there are other children who would enjoy it tremendously.

Saved by the performances.

I was Lords of these because I like short Mysteries. these are surprisingly easy to figure out before the ending. But I did enjoy the performances by both voice actors.
