This has got to be my favourite Charles Paris Mystery so far. Great acting, especially from the supporting cast and a terrific script, full of amusing moments and good lines. I've listened to it several times now, and enjoy it more each time! Highly recommended.
"Jeremy Front, smashing"
the only negative about this performance is waiting the 6 to 12 months for another. favorite lines: Charles " I can see your centerpiece" Frances: "if that line isn't in the panto, I'm not going" hilarious!
Done with the usual wit and verve of all players (although attempted American accents were kinda ... odd).
