Publisher's Summary

George Furnace, flight instructor at Baston Aero Club, dies instantly when his plane crashes into the English countryside. People who knew him are baffled - Furnace was a first-rate pilot, and the plane was in perfect condition - and the inquest records a verdict of death by misadventure.

An Australian visitor to the aero club, Edwin Marriott, Bishop of Cootamundra, suspects that the true story is more complicated. Could this be a dramatic suicide - or even murder? Together with Inspector Bray of Scotland Yard, the intrepid bishop must uncover a cunning criminal scheme.

    Story
    "Enjoyable"

    Clever, twisting plot set at a flying club in the 1930s. The background of flying feels really authentic. The story is definitely plot driven. The characters are there to suit the plot but are interesting (though not great) for all that.
    I recommend this if you enjoy a good puzzle to which you can see no resolution...... I can see why Dorothy Sayers enthused about this young writer. I am now going to check if Audible has recorded any others.

    Story
    "Very factual"

    I enjoyed this story, as I like the old fashioned style of "who dunnit". However, my preference is more for the Agatha Christie style, where you get to know the characters, rather than this sort where you're following all the clues. Having said that, this is good fun to listen to with some twists and turns and even a little romance. Well worth a listen.

    "So well written and performed"

    I will try and get my hands on the rest of the author's mysteries. So clever and entertaining. Perfect and well crafted. I sincerely hope more of them can be obtained through Audible. This felt more like a radio play as I believe there were multiple performers. Delightfully done. Can't recommend it enough.
