Very Nice

A good selection of short stories, narrated well and written to hold interest.



Clues are fair and the plots well thought out. (I think Edmund Crispin was a founder member of the Detective Writers' Club who formed the rules for writing detective fiction so as to be fair to the reader).



I found this highly entertaining and would have no trouble recommending it.



Thank you, Audible, for introducing some classic detective fiction that is extremely well read.

Classic Crispin

A slightly breathless delivery in this narration but well characterised. Short stories, many including Inspector Humbleby, with the usual Crispin twists and unlikely plots. All good fun and a must for Crispin/Fen fans.
