批評家のレビュー

“Listeners should hold on tight as narrator Simon Mattacks escorts them on a fast-paced journey with the Dizzy Heights jazz band as they play a gig at the elegant Bilverton House, where an upscale crowd partakes in the latest 1920s jiving. Mattacks accelerates the drama as a wild storm traps the band at the British estate, where the host is found dead.... Seamlessly and without hesitation, Mattacks clearly differentiates character voices.... This listen is a rollicking ride as Mattacks reveals how the band hits a high note while conducting a proper murder investigation.” (AudioFile Magazine)

あらすじ・解説

A locked room. A mysterious death. Just another gig for the Dizzy Heights.

When London’s finest jazz musicians, the Dizzy Heights, are booked to play the glitzy Midsummer Ball at a country house in Oxfordshire, they expect a weekend filled with flappers and toffs having a roaring good time.

But the festivities at Bilverton House take a turn for the worse when the group are stranded by a summer storm. And when a member of the Bilverton family turns up dead in a locked room in an apparent suicide, Skins, Dunn and Ellie realize this is going to be a much tougher gig than they thought.

But here’s the lick. What if it was in fact cold-blooded murder? And what if the killer is still at large? It’s up to the Dizzy Heights to once again put down their instruments and get improvising if they want to solve this confounding mystery.

Disappointed

I have loved the Lady Hardcastle mysteries and have listened to them at least three times each. I didn’t mind the first book featuring the Dizzy Heights but this book was definitely pedestrian. The dialogue was tiresome and too simplistic. I completely object to deviant behavior creeping in many chapters in with no warning whatsoever. I feel it is only fair to warn listeners that unsavory subject matter is going to pop up. I would not have purchased this book if I had been informed. I will be returning this book.

Another Dizzy Heights adventure

An engaging story with an excellent narrator. The Dizzy Heights play at a party in the countryside, then have to stay because of flooding. A suspicious suicide starts the investigation, and a member of the family assists. Before long someone else is dead, and Skins, Ellie and Bartie start to figure out the clues. I highly recommend this book!

Delightful

TE Kinsey has done it again! An intriguing mystery filled with delightful characters, wonderful double entendres and banter. Performed wonderfully. Every single character comes alive. Can’t wait for the next one.

I love this series. A mystery and laughs along the way. I can never guess the culprit. That makes it a wonderful mystery.

The second book is better than the first.

I suspect that we did not have to spend time getting to know the characters. This book was a good mystery. Clean family book.

very good book

I enjoyed the book very much. I love the English humor. The characters are very real. They have nice personalities and with the author's description they really come alive. The storytelling and surrounding areas descriptions make it all really interesting.

Can one be bored to death?

Without doubt the most boring book I’ve ever listened to. Very disappointing as I’m a fan of the Lady Hardcastle novels. What on earth happened here? The characters were uninteresting and the plot was contrived. An absolute waste of Audible hours.

Poor

A real struggle to finish the book. It's a murder mystery I guess with a band as the detectives. The characters have very little story around them. The book is very predicable. The author unnecessarily repeats what has happened over and over incase you forgot.

Overall very boring. The narrator doesn't help as all the characters sound similar.

Brilliant book

Interesting but not overly convoluted storyline, with likeable protagonists. I liked that it catered to modern views while acknowledging that 100 years ago things would have been different (eg, racism, homosexuality etc). A well written and really well performed book.

spiffing

first off, this is book two and yes I started here unawares there was another. secondly, there's a minor spoiler, I believe, to boom 1 towards the end.
the book: LOVED it. being totally objective the story is pretty standard, but the Narrator (Simon Mattacks) is fantastic and really brought it all to life.
off now as I need to start book one, and then check out Kinseys' other books that, I think, exist in the same "universe".

Enjoyable, and with more than enough clues to uncover the killer's identity for yourself.

Great fun

Can’t work out who is who I need to listen better. This is a terrific series with a bit of murder and a bit of fun.
