Mrs. Pargeter, a widow, agrees to travel to Corfu with her newly widowed friend. When her friend is killed, Mrs. P. sets out to prove it was murder. Having heard Brett speak as a master of ceremonies, I had high expectations of the author’s own reading. Brett voices his characters with subtle changes of pitch and tone. Interestingly, his concept of Mrs. P’s voice was the only one which differed rather radically from mine, sounding fairly Cockney. During narrative passages his pacing becomes somewhat portentous, but this is a minor problem--his reading is generally as bright and winning as Mrs. P herself.
