A nanny's murder presents numerous suspects and motives to Inspector Luke Thanet. In another of Simpson's cerebral and humanistic mysteries, Thanet's investigation of the crime, which has a skilled twist at conclusion, displays his usual steady methodology. Terence Hardiman narrates at a similarly steady pace. His vocalizations for young people, women and the various policemen are equally good. Speech patterns subtly change to distinguish characters, augmenting Simpson's fine, descriptive character development. Listeners can follow dialogue and narrative passages easily. Chivers's usual fidelity adds to the program, which is sure to appeal to Simpson fans and any listeners who like their mysteries in traditional English style.
