The sixtieth birthday party of Silas Kane was marred by argument and dissension among his family. And then, the morning after the celebrations, Kane is found dead at the foot of a cliff. The theory that Silas accidentally lost his way in the fog is confirmed when the coroner returns a verdict of death by misadventure. But then Kane's nephew and heir is murdered and threats are made on the next in line to the fortune, throwing a new and sinister light on Kane's death. All clues point to an elderly lady of eighty as the killer.

What did you like best about this story?

I was really looking forward to having the Georgette Heyer detective novels in audio, having read them in the past. This one is a good story.

How could the performance have been better?

Very poor - over-enunciated with pauses in strange places and some odd pronunciation. I won't be buying any more of this series.
