Summary

From the authors of the best-selling series Cherringham.

Mydworth's Excelsior Radio Company is world-famous for its expensive radio-phonographs. But suddenly the Excelsior delivery lorries start being hijacked, and the very future of the company is in doubt. Is this just about stolen radios - or is there something more secret and dangerous going on? When Harry and Kat are brought in to help, they decide to go undercover to solve the crimes and soon discover there are many more secrets to this mystery than meets the eye...

Nathaniel Parker, born in 1962, graduated from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and went on to join the Royal Shakespeare Company. His television career began in 1988 when he played Flying Officer 'Flash' Gordon in the LWT mini-series Piece of Cake. He is also the lead in the BBC series The Inspector Lynley Mysteries, based on the novels by Elizabeth George. Nathaniel Parker has an extensive list of audio books to his credit, ranging from the classics of Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy to more modern writings and children's books.

Good, But Not As Good as Previous Books.

Story was too simple. Had to come back a few times to finish it.
Harry's solo escapade totally unbelievable he was allowed to do it alone. The speed of Kat's driving must have been supersonic!
Interesting concept but....something missing. Can't put my finger on it.

Another wonderful little tale

I find these little stories wonderfully addictive, the adorably cute relationship between Sir Harry and his American Lady are just delightful to listen to especially when read by such a voice!

Deadly Cargo

As this series of stories continues with Deadly Cargo I continue to enjoy the story, the characters and the narrator. The short story format is perfect for filling in when time is short, but, I do wish a longer...or maybe more frequent “next” in the series was there to begin, when the current one finishes.

Becoming one of my favorites.

This book reminds me, this cozy mystery series (writing, character development, individual and overall plots) and narration is one of my favorites.

only read if you don't mind

there are a few points where you will be yelling at the author " why invent such stupid Heroes". questions they didn't think to ask. Even of themselves.

but worst of all: set up a sting and not have the police standing by. just wait till it all falls apart and then Rush miles to the nearest telephone? Really?

Great read!

Another great book by Costello and Richards. It kept me guessing to the end. There seemed to be an obvious guilty party but nope not even close.
