Journalist, historian, and author Ruth Dudley Edwards composed this entertaining murder mystery, one of several in the Robert Amiss series. Civil servant Amiss embarks upon a new job in the British Conservation Society. A few months into his employ and precisely on Saint Valentine's Day, a multiple murderer strikes co-workers and their families in a subtle but deadly manner. Bill Wallis voices a lighthearted and quizzical Amiss. His English accent complements each gender and is especially accurate at portraying the characters as individuals: investigators, romantic interests, bereaved family members, and prospective suspects. Humorously satiric, yet stately and serious, this story offers pleasurable listening. B.J.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
