Mystery & Suspense • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Narrator Gordon Griffin aptly introduces this title from 1940--the Golden Age of British detective fiction--in the speaking style and vocabulary of the day. Detective Inspector Patrick McCarthy, who lives and works in Soho, London, is chilled to hear a piercing cry during a WWII blackout. Listeners will be riveted to hear the police investigate in almost total darkness. To complicate matters for the wonderfully rendered McCarthy, who's conscientious and painstaking, there's no body--only a bloody handkerchief and a knife. Griffin's accents are spot-on as McCarthy trails Italian gangsters, German spies, and various aristocrats in order to locate vital defense plans before they're passed on to enemy hands. Listeners will enjoy the convoluted details of the plot before the conclusion unfolds. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
