Written by one of the forgotten masters of the Golden Age of British detective fiction (who also wrote under the name of Anthony Berkley), this novel--adapted by Alfred Hitchcock as SUSPICION--tells of a woman trapped by her own doubts and gullibility in a marriage to a man who may be a murderer. With a voice very pleasant to listen to, Bruce Montague guides the listener from the charmed courtship to the sinister climax with his slow, precise, slightly elegant speaking style. The British actor uses his comforting pace to complement the idyllic, almost Austenesque country life of the couple, giving stark contrast to the ominous events occurring in the background.
