The body of a young woman found at the exact center of the maze in Miss Daphne's garden sets off an investigation that involves an inherited predisposition to a particular cancer, DNA testing, and adultery. Detective Inspector C.D. Sloan, accompanied by the inept Detective Constable Crosby, reluctantly undertakes the investigation and quickly determines that there's a lot more to it than is immediately obvious. Bruce Montague narrates in a rich, deep voice that's easy on the ears and provides distinct voices for characters in dialogue. The usual assortment of English country inhabitants, with all their idiosyncrasies, is colorfully depicted and well differentiated. The dry humor that lightens the murder investigation is enhanced by the performance with perfect timing. A delightful listening experience. S.S.R.
