Unwed mother Sally Jupp has been sent to work as a housemaid. Her presence unsettles everyone. Her murder unsettles them more until Inspector Dagliesh solves the crime. Franklyn-Robbins is a fine reader, with an elegant voice superbly suited to the intricate problems of relationships in the upper classes. With subtle changes of pitch and excellent phrasing and pacing--particularly for the world-weary Dagliesh--he captures the best of the British cozy. In fact, his superior reading elevates what is rather a dull book, with its prolonged denouement, to a surprisingly exciting experience. S.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 93]
