Publisher's Summary

It's 1934. When Miss Pongleton is found murdered on the stairs of Belsize Park station, her fellow boarders in the Frampton Hotel are not overwhelmed with grief at the death of a tiresome old woman. But they all have their theories about the identity of the murderer and help to unravel the mystery of who killed the wealthy 'Pongle'. Several of her fellow residents - even Tuppy the terrier - have parts to play in the events that lead to a dramatic arrest.
This classic mystery novel is set in and around the Northern Line of the London Underground. It is now republished for the first time since the 1930s.

A cunning mystery, well read

This rather charming mystery is carefully plotted with a nice surprise ending. The characters are charming and the reading is perfection.

Lovely Golden Age detective whodunit

The story was well written.
The solution might have been very neat and tidy, but all in all, this was a nice and cosy romp. Perfect for a rainy or snowy day or dark and stormy night, when all you want to do is bury your head under the covers, while this audiobook plays in the background.

Poor

Disappointingly laboured. Very obvious who did the murder. Not even a good depiction of London at the time. There are many better Golden Age detective books that are no yet on audio.
