Publisher's Summary

In "The Detective's Wife", Tudor Jenks, perhaps having had a bit too much of all-knowing and near omniscient sleuths, seems to be having his own joke on Conan Doyle and his followers.

This audiobook takes you back into the parlor of one such brilliant and undefeatable detective, who brags to his wife that the logical and mathematical male mind is superior to the disorganized and emotional mind of the female. His wife disagrees.

A short satirical take on great detectives

If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan, or maybe a bit tired of him, this short radio drama is for you. Playing of the wit of a wife against the investigative skills of her great detective husband, Tudor Jenks successfully makes fun of the wonderful logical world of deduction.

While the story might be a bit dated, it leaves you with a chuckle. Jenks' point comes over loud and clear, "Do not underestimate those of a different gender persuasion!"

Even the small cost is no compensation.

'16 minutes', it advertised. There were just over 11 minutes left after the generalised introduction. After it finished, there was a minute left for all the closing remarks from Audible. Do the maths. The story itself was less exciting than what one finds in some weekly magazines. Hardly worth the effort of recording. very disappointing.
