It is pure coincidence that this, one of Allingham's earliest novels about Albert Campion, was the first one I ever listened to. I have long been a fan of murder mysteries and have more than my fair share of books and audiobooks by Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers, P D James etc. One day I went to my local bookshop looking for something new and picked out this little gem.
Philip Franks is, in my opinion, an excellent choice of reader. His vocal range is really quite impressive and he captures Campion's supposed slight naivety perfectly.
The plot is delightful - murder, theft, betrayal... It's all there!
This is a worthy item for any murder mystery collection, as are all the Allingham audiobooks I have bought thus far. There are now only two of her stories missing from my collection ;-)
