Mystery & Suspense • 8.25 hrs • Unabridged • © 1968

The untimely death of his aunt in a posh nursing home leads Tommy Beresford and his wife, Tuppence, to a foreboding house, a mysterious painting and murder. Alex Jennings reads suspense, nuance and atmosphere into this enigmatic story entangled with numerous characters and myriad emotions. He meets the challenge of portraying multiple characters with apparent ease, establishing unique qualities for each one. His narration proceeds at an enjoyable pace, keeping the story moving at exactly the right speed for the plot’s twists and turns. Jennings times the humor precisely to catch the subtlety of British wit. A reading not to be missed by mystery fans. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 95]
