Publisher's Summary

On sabbatical from the Franciscan order, Father Paolo Baldi is working as a philosophy lecturer in Dublin when his life takes an unexpected turn and he finds himself helping the police to solve crimes.

In 'Miss Lonelyhearts', Paolo and DI Tina Mahon investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the tragic death of a nurse at an old people's home, and uncover an unlikely case of voyeurism.

'The Emerald Style' finds Paolo attempting to wine and dine his spiritual director, Father Troy, at a leading Dublin hotel - but their meeting is interrupted by a murder taking place behind the scenes that very evening.

These two full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramatisations star David Threlfall as Father Paolo Baldi.

    "What good enjoyable radio drama should be"
    If you could sum up BBC Radio Crimes: The Father Paolo Baldi Mysteries: Miss Lonelyhearts & The Emerald Style in three words, what would they be?

    Witty engaging fun


    What other book might you compare BBC Radio Crimes: The Father Paolo Baldi Mysteries: Miss Lonelyhearts & The Emerald Style to, and why?

    This is one of a series of BBC crime drama serials that have been available on audible. They all follow the format of two self contained dramas based on one central character. In this case it is father baldi a priest on a sabbatical who uses his skills in semiotics to help the garde solve murders that he has a lose connection to. It is particularly good as he has a "love" interest with one of the lead detectives which creates an interesting tension in the series.
    All in all very enjoyable what SATURDAY Night theatre on Radio 4 used to be enjoyable without being too cerebral.


    Any additional comments?

    Can we have Saturday night theater on Audible?
