Plausible and engaging story

This is one of Anne Granger's more plausible stories, at least some of it, and one of her better books. The story was well-constructed and the characters easy to remember, which is important in an audio book. Meredith Mitchell, Inspector Markby's companion, plays a bigger part in the detection of the crimes in this book than in some others. It's a long recording, but it never flags and is excellently read by Judith Boyd.
