Paul Temple and his wife, Steve, quietly investigate the disappearance of two boys in rural Yorkshire. Just before they arrive in Yorkshire, the father of the boys is killed. Throughout their preliminary inquiries the name Curzon keeps coming up. Their hastily constructed holiday to Steve's childhood county provides a thinly veiled excuse for poking around in the country gentry's business, and they quickly become entangled in local intrigues and petty jealousies. Laurence Kennedy narrates this intense mystery with crisp British accents that allow the listener to easily differentiate the characters. The tension is palpable as the investigation heats up. This 1971 mystery holds up well against other British whodunits. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
