This delightful “whodunit” unfolds at the all-female Shrewsbury College at Oxford. It features Harriet Vane, a returned alumna and mystery writer and Lord Peter Wimsey, noted detective and sometime boyfriend of Ms. Vane. Since most of the leading characters are female, one might think the publisher would have selected a female reader. However, this audiobook is a magnificent illustration of how a trained male reader can change his voice to achieve excellent character differentiation among a host of females. Carmichael’s portrayal of the dons is so vivid that the listener feels transported to the Senior Common Room and other places at Shrewsbury College. J.D.N.
