Inspector Thomas Lynley of New Scotland Yard approaches each case with immense confidence. It doesn't always lead him in the right direction--as here, where he sets out to solve a double homicide on the moors of Derbyshire. Derek Jacobi possesses the same sureness with the narrative--an astute sense for the right tone and inflection. He easily leads listeners through the many changes of scenes and characters. He's able to keep the story's momentum even though the abridgment allows mere glimpses into other subplots. Music used to underscore some of the narration--more than the usual "bridge"--is an interesting addition, giving the production a more dramatized feel.
