THE MAN IN THE QUEUE is forty years old, but it could have been written today or eighty years ago. This variation on the "locked room" mystery, with a man stabbed to death in a crowded theater line, appeals to almost everyone. Tey's clever twists add to the suspense as Inspector Grant unravels the secrets of the murderer and his victim. Stephen Thorne's presentation wonderfully enhances the story; he handles men and women, as well as foreign and Cockney accents commendably. In light of the story's age, it's particularly amusing to hear the unchanging but humorous views that seem to be universally held about law enforcement and the police. Listen for them!
