Who burglarised the train heading for Victoria Station and whatever became of its conductor? Did the village idiot or Mrs Foley murder the mean-spirited Edgar Foley? Or could the constable be responsible for the devious deed? Who on earth will be able to untangle the affair of the disappearing car, the black necktie, and the abortive theft?

A good selection of short stories, narrated well and written to hold interest.
Clues are fair and the plots well thought out. (I think Edmund Crispin was a founder member of the Detective Writers' Club who formed the rules for writing detective fiction so as to be fair to the reader).
I found this highly entertaining and would have no trouble recommending it.
Thank you, Audible, for introducing some classic detective fiction that is extremely well read.

A slightly breathless delivery in this narration but well characterised. Short stories, many including Inspector Humbleby, with the usual Crispin twists and unlikely plots. All good fun and a must for Crispin/Fen fans.
