Narrator Clifford Norgate depicts the victim in this story, Sir Arthur Billington-Smith, or "The General," as the man everyone loves to hate, and with good reason. With a houseful of murder suspects to draw from in this English country house mystery, Inspector John Harding of Scotland Yard questions each one at length and, not surprisingly, learns the victim was disliked by all. Norgate excels in the necessary variety of English accents and genders and captures a broad spectrum of English society with language, vocal tone, and pitch. The sifting of suspects and clues is as methodical as one would expect, and the ending is ultimately satisfying for the lover of "the cozy" mystery. G.D.W.
