Understandably, Lord Burford had some misgivings about hosting another house party at Alderley, his beautiful country mansion. After all, the previous two could at best be described as disastrous, since a couple of their guests were bumped off during their stay on each occasion. But with family members travelling down for the funeral of an elderly relative, the Earl really had no choice but to offer them accommodation.

I was really looking forward to listening to this series. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle & Stephen Fry,
what a brilliant combination. After attempting to listen a few times, I had to give up. It's like Audible turned the shuffle on. The running order is not in sequence, meaning chapters and stories are mixed together. I'm afraid the track listing which Audible has added didn't help. I just lost all interest in the recording, which is a shame.
Cannot give an opinion on performance as I had no opportunity to hear it.
