Loved the Story
This was my first Albert Campion Mystery and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It has all the elements of a classic english crime story and if you love that kind of thing, you're in for a treat.
The only thing which kind of damped my enjoyment of this otherwise excellent reading was the interpretation of the female voices, especially the elderly aunt. It was too over the top and the high pitched voice was getting on my nerves. I really couldn't listen to what "she" was saying and was just hoping she would stop soon. Luckily the aunt hadn't too much stage time.
