Judith Boyd's warm, slightly vibrato voice heightens the appeal of this delightful addition to Granger's popular English mystery series, featuring Chief Inspector Markby and his friend, Meredith Mitchell. This time the grand opening of a new country hotel is marred by the discovery of a recently murdered body on the premises. Trouble all around, and much fun for the listener. Boyd's mastery of regional accents highlights the characters' varying backgrounds. Her careful pacing lets the story unfold with a natural rhythm--one can almost follow the characters around in one's imagination. The only criticism is that occasionally Boyd's narrative voice cannot be distinguished from the voice given to Mitchell, but the slips are not a big problem. Prepare to curl up and listen happily.
