Mystery & Suspense • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Matt Green enters riotously into this madcap mystery by Lynne Truss, author of the famously funny guide to punctuation EATS, SHOOTS & LEAVES. Full of slyness, slapstick, and utter English silliness, Truss's confection features bumbling Inspector Steine, well-meaning Sergeant Brunswick, and a constable who's been fired from previous postings for being too smart. Also, a theater critic whose head is shot into smithereens, a lady who can bend iron bars, a mysterious person in a red wig, and more. Green, who performed in Truss's BBC radio series about Steine and Brunswick, delivers wittily exaggerated characterizations, a rapid-fire pace, and sotto voce asides with aplomb. Performing with tongue in cheek and absolute sincerity, his audible delight keeps listeners smiling with pleasure at all the ridiculousness.
