With a few minor changes, this 1939 tale could have been written today. The listener's attention is immediately captured when an auto accident takes on strange undertones. Since most of the action takes place in and around a pub with little "real" action, a good presentation is imperative. This is done wonderfully by narrator Saxon. He handles various accents, the two females as well as others, with equal skill. He excels at portraying the quarrelsome old men. Marsh keeps things interesting, and Saxon keeps the momentum going with his delivery. A Ngaio Marsh book is more than a mystery. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 94]
