Having seen the tv series many years ago, I was looking forward to this book and was not disappointed. The characters of the principal family are well drawn and the mystery has the usual twists and turns.
Wycliffe himself, though, and Lane and Kersey are rather undeveloped. There is very little of the probing of the psychology of the detectives nor much mention of their private lives which most contemporary murder mysteries explore. Tale well told though.
The only other Wycliffe books in audible are abridged - which is a pity, though they are read by Jack Shepherd who played Wycliffe on the TV: but generally I find abridged books dissatisfying.
More Wycliffe please!
