Publisher's Summary

The April Fool's Day had been a roaring success for all, it seemed - except for poor Mr. Cartell, who had ended up in the ditch - forever. Then there was the case of Mr. Percival Pyke Period's letter of condolence, sent before the body was found - not to mention the family squabbles.

It was a puzzling crime for Superintendent Alleyn....

    "Super narrator"

    I've listened to all the Ngaio Marsh narrators and Mr Sinden is my favourite: especially his Inspector Fox.

    "The audiobook would have been better if Saxon narrated"

    The story was entertaining. The swallowing of the narrator was noticeable and a distraction, especially near the end.

    "once again narrator ruined the story"
    Would you try another book from Ngaio Marsh and/or Jeremy Sinden?

    love inspector Alleyn but HATE this narrator - he mispronounces the FAMOUS main character's last name and it ruins it for me...too distracting.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    love inspector Alleyn but HATE this narrator - he mispronounces the FAMOUS main character's last name and it ruins it for me...too distracting. if you can get past that, ots probably a good story - i don't know - couldn't listen any longer and returned the title


    What character would you cut from Hand in Glove?

    the narrator
