by | Read by Ian Carmichael

Mystery & Suspense • 8.25 hrs • Anthology • © 1939

Ian Carmichael is a great reader; his sound effects, especially of the dentist's drill, are unforgettable and add a unique element to this collection of seventeen stories. Carmichael is perfect as Lord Peter Wimsey, whom he played on TV, and he performs Montague Egg and the other multitude of characters with rich, successful accents and dialects. He presents the narration consistently and clearly with excellent dramatic pacing. "The Leopard Lady," in which Cyril is so delicately disposed of, and "The Cyprian Cat," in which Mrs. Merridew dies after the Cyprian cat is shot, are excellent examples of Sayers at her best. These classic British detective stories, with a little of the supernatural thrown in, will delight listeners. S.C.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 95]
