It’s 1930’s Britain, an era when butlers, valets and housekeepers are still part of upper-class society, when a local constable finds a man stabbed to death, his body pinned in antique stocks on the town green. It seems many people disliked Arnold Vereker, but finding the killer isn’t a simple matter. Robbie MacNab reads this book, in the classic style of Christie and Allingham, with panache. MacNab’s rendition of the characters’ accents is great fun. From exaggerated culture to lazy carelessness--he’s right on. Listening to the accounts of the various people either trying to prove their innocence or, in some cases, propose their own possible guilt will keep you amused. The mystery is a puzzle to the very end. D.M.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
