Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Francis Matthews

Mystery & Suspense • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1968

The village of Salty has an unsavory reputation. It's not only a notorious smugglers' haven, but also a dangerous backwater linked with tales of demons, pirates and murder. Allingham's hero, Albert Campion, has a secret interest in the place as do an American historian and a beautiful doctor. This is a fine, old-fashioned English mystery with classic twists in plot and colorful, local characters. Matthews does far more than read the tale; he dramatizes the action, as well. It's hard to believe one actor creates so many different voices. Each character, from the arrogant young bikers to the suave Mr. Campion, is perfectly portrayed with just the right intonation and accent. Listeners will delight in their visit to Salty. D.L.G.
