Mystery & Suspense • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Matt Green and author Lynne Truss shine in their second adventure together featuring Constable Twitten of the Brighton, England, constabulary, circa 1950. This time, we have a murder in a beach chair, a notorious con artist, good lovely ladies, nasty lovely ladies, a secret basement, and hideously bad wax effigies à la Madame Tussaud. That's just for starters. Green audibly delights in the resulting confection, which is sly, silly, and indisputably English. He narrates with energy, clarity, and the pacing of the best radio comedies. The wealth of voices, from Twitten's sincere tone and hint of a lisp to a gentleman's nasal tones and a lady gangster's growl, are as diverting as they are informative. Sit back and enjoy.
