Publisher's Summary

Every English mansion has a locked room, and Grinton Hall is no exception. The library has hidden doors and passages - and a corpse. But when the corpse goes missing, Sir John Appleby and Charles Honeybath have an even more perplexing case on their hands.
Just how did it disappear when the doors and windows were securely locked?
A bevy of helpful houseguests offer endless assistance, but the two detectives suspect that they are concealing vital information. Could the treasures on the library shelves be so valuable that someone would murder for them?

Country house mystery with an artistic twist

This was my first Michael Innes book and I enjoyed it. I was hoping there would be more about painting in it, as Honeybath is a Royal Academician and portrait painter. (I am a figure painter myself). However, he never did get around to beginning his portrait, which is ostensibly why he finds himself in the setting which contains this clever mystery.

Actor-musician Jeremy Clyde provides his usual good timing and beautiful tone for the narration. (He comes by that posh voice honestly, you know). The only thing I'd change would be just a touch more differentiation between the characters.

Order a Bucks Fizz and listen for yourself. It's worth a credit, and I for one will be back for more.
