BENEATH THESE STONES is another in Granger's British detective series featuring Superintendent Markby and his lady friend, Meredith Mitchell. In this tale the corpse of a local farmer's wife is discovered along a thickly wooded railroad embankment. The farmer is the prime suspect, and his 12-year-old daughter clearly knows something she is unwilling to disclose. Narrator Bill Wallis does his usual masterful job of narration. Each of the many characters speaks in a distinctive voice. As the cast includes members of many classes, including a family of gypsies camping on the farmer's land, this is no mean feat. Wallis handles female voices with particular skill; he identifies women as women without resorting to falsetto or shrillness. Fans of mysteries and fans of Bill Wallis have a real treat in store.
