Alexander John performs this book; he doesn't simply read it. With the British accent the setting demands, John becomes alternately harsh and guttural, then educated and even foppish. He enunciates the women characters with equal aplomb. So one settles back for a manor-house mystery (sort of) as if in an old familiar chair, with a brandy at one's side. The story concerns the poisoning of a busybody and the opportunities practically everybody in the area had to do the old girl in. All of the suspects are associated in some way with the most powerful landholding family in the region. Tallyho! D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
