Simon Brett combines his considerable talents as novelist and actor to produce a light-hearted, dramatically read English murder mystery set in the studios, bars, and byways frequented by the staff and personalities of BBC radio. Much of the humor derives from the clash between the banal civil servant and the high-spirited artist, sometimes the same individual, which Brett masterfully mirrors in his vocal intonations. His sound portraits of the members of the"pedestrian features action committee" are hilarious. His accents and vocal impersonations, particularly those of the female characters, are lively, accurate, consistent, and unique to each character. J.D.N.
