This short but most satisfying Lord Peter Wimsey mystery, though pleasingly old-fashioned, is still appropriate today in our world of clever advertising and recreational drugs. Ian Carmichael recreates Lord Peter perfectly as the aristocratic gentleman and, in this story, jingle-writing advertising man. He makes Lord Peter blend in most believably with the everyday setting. Sound effects and the simpering of a spoiled aristocrat help bring the vintage time frame alive. Three other splendid narrators help enhance memorable lines such as, "It's not every puppy that appears in the kennel book." This is the perfect recommendation for mystery fans, as well as those who simply want to be entertained by the best! S.G.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
