If you hadn’t scanned the CD case, you’d swear this production is read by multiple narrators. Ric Jerrom delivers an outstanding narration that brings to life the assorted characters of Catherine Aird's imaginary village of Calleshire. This mystery is another in the Inspector Sloan series, featuring the unpretentious, unperturbed detective and squabbling, conniving villagers bent upon cheating, stealing, and even murder. Here the plot centers on a real estate scam. Jerrom narrates in a genteel manner at a leisurely pace, both of which befit this classic cozy. While the plot isn't suspenseful or memorable, this is a well-performed English police procedural, true to the genre. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
