Mystery & Suspense • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

The title character, whose blatantly false name is a malevolent warning to Colonel James Lockyer-Fox, is a member of a New Age gypsy band camped near the Lockyer-Fox estate, intent on making big trouble for the family. But why? Who is he? And while we're at it, was the Colonel's wife murdered, as some of the neighbors believe? Where are the Colonel's disaffected grown children? And what about Colonel Fox's granddaughter, Nancy, given up for adoption when a baby but suddenly reappeared? The incomparable Simon Prebble makes this deft psychological puzzle the kind of audiobook you go on listening to in the driveway long after you've gotten where you're going. He is a marvel. B.G.
