Mystery & Suspense • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Listeners will be taken back to 1959 to a subterranean world below London where a group of young investigators solve crimes involving dangerous criminals and international conspiracies. Through the dramatic, versatile voice of narrator Karen Cass we hear the lively exchanges of the apprentices at Miss Brickett's Secret Detective Agency as they confront Soviet spies, gruesome murders, and internal conspiracies. This imaginative historical thriller relies on fantastical gadgets and improbable adventures, but what the plot lacks in authenticity, it makes up for in excitement. Cass gives each character, whether victim or aggressor, male or female, Russian or English, a voice that is appropriate and distinctive. This is a story for those who grew up loving Hogwarts.
