Mystery & Suspense • 6.6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1986

Inspector Morse mysteries always bring multiple pleasures: unique characterization of the inspector's eccentric personality and his relationship with his partner, Lewis; an Oxford setting, a clever twist; and, in this story, even a romantic interlude for the austere Morse. Narrator Pennington enhances an already excellent work. He presents differences in class, age and gender commendably. An astute listener will enjoy just the anticipation of his varied deliveries. Each of the many characters, all at a New Year's Eve masquerade party, maintain a separate identity, making this "whodunnit" particularly compelling.
