I bought this audiobook because Napoleon Ryan is one or my favorite narrators. I had not heard of Harry Carmichael but have since learned he was a prolific mystery writer and this book is a part of a series which began about 20 years earlier in 1952. The main character is John Piper, an insurance assessor. I didn't realize of the 4 books available on Audible, Naked to the Grave is the most recent, but I don't think it really matters. I intend to purchase the other 3 books.
The narration may take some getting used to - for one thing, Napoleon Ryan has a very deep voice. In this book he reads rather slowly and deliberately, especially for some of the dialogue. That wasn't a problem for me, in fact I enjoyed the unusual pace. It seemed to suit the characters.
The first murder has already occurred when the book begins. The story is mainly told in dialogue as Piper, Quinn the reporter, and the police detective work together to analyze events. The book is only about 6 and a half hours, which was probably good since once I started listening I didn't want to stop.
I highly recommend this book and am anxiously awaiting my next credit so I can buy more from the series.
