Children Ages 6+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 1997

Detective siblings Max and Maddy Twist, known for their abilities at the game of Clue, have been hired by Conrad Huffendorf to help solve the mystery of who's behind a series of Swiss bank burglaries carried out by a pack of Saint Bernard dogs. The author reads the story in his delightfully smooth, elegant voice, which will appeal to listeners of all ages. He occasionally addresses his readers ("Which would you have chosen? Money, or chocolate?"), a device that makes his cozy reading style even more intimate. His narration is so lighthearted sounding that even with the evil Professor Claude Sardine in the picture listeners won't feel much tension. But with chapters like "Cable-car Adventure" to absorb them, who will mind? J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
