An interesting, quick listen
A great, quick listen - not my usual fare (straightforward crime fiction) but the story is expertly structured and very light-handed in terms of the prose.
There is only as much in there as needs to be, but hints at a lot more.

Not bad but I found the story a little weird & unlikely. The outcome/result/conclusion became quite predictable as I knew fairly early who was behind the ransom demand. I only really purchased this short story as it was narrated by Peter Forbes. Not sure I'd really bother with another Allan Guthrie story not for a while anyway.
