I love these stories with their meticulous focus on the details of the mystery and the actions of Inspector French to try and puzzle them out. If you're looking for in depth development of the characters and their relationships then these stories aren't for you, but I find the step by step unravelling of the mystery, in a time when landline telephones and telegrams were the most rapid forms of communication, great fun. Phil Fox is a very good narrator, pacing his delivery well and voicing the different characters sufficiently to tell them apart, but without going over the top. I'm looking forward to more in this series.

This the 4 book following the Starvel Hollow case, finds the author and his inspectors skill growing. The detail in caricatures, places and narrative are superbly crafted. inspector French goes about his work with such realistic detail, with clear human undertaking and limitations, making him so believable. You can see late creations of Morse etc being infected by Wills Crofts art form.
