an easy listen

This was a pleasant listen, if somewhat dated in its attitude to women and homosexuality. Agatha Christie 'light' when you want something unchallenging to wash over you.

Usual Ngaio Marsh very well read.

I have read this book and enjoyed the audio version. It is a relatively short book (abridged?) and is an interesting setting on a boat to Cape Town. Very old fashioned and therefore class conscious (snobby) but enjoyable light fare nonetheless.
