Scottish actor David Rintoul delights in this offbeat, witty collection of stories from the author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and other series. Laughter-inducing and wry, the clever tales offer a mix of exquisite retribution and snoops, both accidental and intentional. Settings in such far-flung locations as Algiers, Melbourne, rural England, Shanghai, and the Vatican give Rintoul a chance to play with accents that inform and color the action. His characterizations enhance the story even more. A sneaky priest, a conniving Australian actress, a not-so-dutiful Turkish son, a middle-class suburban woman and the working-class gal next door who are engaged in a battle of wits--the personalities are rendered in aural technicolor and with real-world timing. Just lovely. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
