Mystery & Suspense • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Adam Henderson sounds like a playfully energetic Roddy McDowell, occasionally even like Tallulah Bankhead! If you liked McDowell's campy rendition of Rex Brewster in Agatha Christie's EVIL UNDER THE SUN, you'll find this audiobook to be pure ear candy. The decadent mega-rich Palm Beach bluebloods make their usual appearances. And although Archy does not settle down for his usual evening of listening to Ella Fitzgerald in his kimono, although the usual flirting with Mrs. Trelawny has became snide insults, although the plot isn't very challenging--Adam Henderson's reading is so over the top that you have to smile the whole time, "pinkled tink" by the whole megillah.
