Mystery & Suspense • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Joel Froomkin enhances an informative novella that fills some gaps in the life of former Bow Street runner (investigator) John Pickett of Regency London. Pickett is now realizing that his hope of acquiring aristocratic clients is not going to materialize. In a seeming nod to the movie IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, Froomkin shines as the distraught Pickett questions the value of his life. After falling and hitting his head, he revisits the many people he has helped over the years. Froomkin's best creations are the gentle mother he never knew and the indomitable Magistrate Colquhoun, who once again saves him. Returning and new listeners will savor this humorous story, which may have listeners considering their own contributions to their communities.
