あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin.

Sparkling characterisation and inventive plot from one of the best-known and beloved detective novelists of all time.

The stabbing of irascible General Sir Arthur Billington-Smith fails to stir up grief in anyone - least of all his family, which is no wonder considering the way he had treated them all during the fateful weekend. He had disinherited his son, humiliated his wife, refused to help his financially stricken nephew and made no secret of his loathing for his son's fiancée, a cabaret dancer. Inspector Harding picks his way through a mass of familial discontent to find the culprit - and find much more besides.

poor narrator

A great classic detective story spoilt by a stilted narrator and some awful male voices.

Great story. Narration . . .

One of my favourite detective novels, but sadly ruined by dreadful narration. The straightforward narrative is fine, even good, but character voices verge on caricature, particularly the cabaret dancer, supposedly Mexican, and Geoffrey , whose stammer came and went with no apparent reason why. I got about halfway before I had to give up. Such a disappointment.

Decent story, murdered by narration.

I'm afraid I kept having to remind myself this was a Georgette Heyer story as the narration distracted me from the plot.
Maybe this programme should herald the addition of nil or minus stars for performance. I have noticed that female narrators seem to portray all male characters with a similar voice. This narrator takes the biscuit as this comprises of lowering the voice, slowing down the speed to mono syllables & croaking the lines. This contrasts with the lesser female characters who are portrayed speaking high pitched & squeaky. As for the "Mexican" character in this story it borders on the possibly racist. It seems to slip into Indian at times & is so embarrassingly amateur. There is a character who has a stammer & this veers from stammering on every word to not at all.
The ONLY saving grace is the "none" character narration which you find yourself embracing as a rest from the "acting"
In future I will be taking more notice of WHO is doing the narration as this makes or breaks a good listen.

Story OK, narrator not so good

Not one of Heyers best but Ok. would have been much better with a better narrator. This one gave most characters bad accents (mexican was the worst) and annoying, static, staccato way of speaking. Very irratating.

Narration spoils a cracking story

The narrator is fine when she sticks to her own voice telling the story but the worst I've heard when it comes to giving special voices to the characters. The male characters are creaky, the female screechy, and one character has an abominable caricature of a Mexican accent. A real shame as it spoils a cracking story. I gave up a third of the way through and finished it on my kindle.

Brilliant acting by Polly Edsel,

After a few moments I sank into the story, easily believing in each character who appeared. Polly has done Georgette Heyer's writing proud.
