by | Read by Simon Prebble

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1982

Simon Prebble steps easily into the life of Charles Paris, British actor and sleuth. Here, Charles is an understudy in a production struggling to survive with a star who can't remember his lines. There's a lot of tension on and off the stage; Prebble makes the most of every sentence. The murder takes place on stage halfway through, and solving it is second nature to Paris. Prebble does vocal wonders with all the supporting players, as well as his all-too-human hero. Those who favor tidy British dramas expertly presented will love this and want to check out the other Brett-Prebble collaborations available from Recorded Books.
