Michael Kitchen does a fine job recreating the mood, speech patterns, quaint expressions and slang of 1931 London. (An amusing and "dated" point is presented in the storyline: Miss Barnett is considered an old lady--at 48 years old!) Anthony Berkeley develops the unusual premise of having a fiction crime writer accompany Scotland Yard Chief Inspector Morseby on a murder investigation. Eventually, of course, these two crime experts are pitted against each other in a race to find the killer. The London setting, 30's manners and lifestyle all contribute to make this a fun and intriguing period piece. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 93]
