THE WRANGLER, a venerable British journal of Conservative thought and opinion, loses pots of money annually, draining the estate of its owner, Lord Papworth. His Lordship hires our hero, Robert Amiss, to encourage the journal's eccentric band of writers and editors toward efficiency. The editor and deputy editor are soon dead, victims of foul play and/or inebriation. Bill Wallis's outstanding performance brings each of the characters vividly to life. Wallis never falters, whether delivering an editor's upper-class lisp and honking laugh or a policeman's straight-ahead speech. In addition to the perfectly individualized voices, Wallis's appropriate pace and delivery put the listener in every scene of this most amusing mystery.
