Publisher's Summary

It's no ordinary morning at the Poplars – the master is found dead in his bed, and it seems his high blood pressure was not the cause. When an autopsy reveals a sinister poison, it's up to the quietly resourceful Inspector Hannasyde to catch the murderer in time to spare the next victim. But every single member of the quarrelsome Matthews family has a motive and none, of course, has an alibi.

Great Heyer mystery unfortunately ruined by reader

What did you like best about Behold, Here's Poison? What did you like least?

The good news is Georgette Heyer mysteries have been updated. The bad news is they are all read by the same reader & she isn't very good -- she reads so slowly I lost interest in the story.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Enjoyed the story, great twist at the end.


Would you be willing to try another one of Ulli Birvé’s performances?

NO


Was Behold, Here's Poison worth the listening time?

No


Any additional comments?

Enjoyed Georgette Heyer's The Grand Sophie & wished the reader had been used for Heyer's mysteries also.

Between Heyer's Deft Characterizations

And Ulli Berve's skillful narration this is an outstanding example of a genre that flourished in the heyday/golden age of the English murder mystery. Although Agatha Christie was the better known and best selling practitioner of this type of book I find ther is more depth and nuance in characterization in Heyer's works whereas Christie manipulates card board cut outs through her admittedly ingenious plots? Highly recommended for what is, an adept version of a type of mystery so frequently written in the day it virtually qualified as a cottage industry. The narrator is the icing on the cakes at the cream teas.
