Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Peter Wickham

Mystery & Suspense • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1948

Move over, Nick and Nora! Suave British crime novelist cum detective Paul Temple and his wife, Steve, a Fleet Street journalist, have mastered the glamorous world of 1940s crime detection. Many of Durbridge's detective novels have been adapted as successful full-cast radio series, plays, TV series, and films. Here, the couple sparkle as they solve a series of killings dubbed the Rex murders. Peter Wickham expressively captures the story’s humorous dialogue and dangerous action. Reading solo, Wickham creates crisp characterizations that shine throughout fast-paced intrigues peppered with blind alleys, frightful escapades, and red herrings. Further, Wickham's versatile delivery artfully engages the subtle nuances of a diverse spectrum of British accents. A.W.
