Robert Amiss, the civil servant protagonist in several of Edwards's mysteries, has resigned his bureau-cratic post and hasn't a clue about what his next career more will be. Enter two CID friends with a request that he perform undercover work at the Knightsbridge School of English--a most unusual school. Several murders later, all plots and villains are revealed, and Amiss rejoins the ranks of the unemployed. Bill Wallis delivers a superb reading of this involved, implausible, yet entertaining mystery. Each character is so distinctly individual that it's like listening to a play performed by a full cast. And his pacing of conversation gives one the sense of eavesdropping. A virtuoso performance. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
