Great as always

A brand new mystery and I think it was an awesome one. The story line is great, thrilling until the end. The characters are all played with great emotions and are just inviting to follow their story! Like all the other Paul Temple stories I couldn't resist to listen to this mystery from beginning to end without interruption.

Good Hardy Boys adventure for grown-ups

Very enjoyable mystery drama. A sophisticated English married couple, 1930s-1940s era going through murder and mayhem with calm and cool, and this was like a Hardy Boys book for adults. Lots of action, sinister characters, and plot twists (some very predictable). If you're looking for the "Nick and Nora" wit of "The Thin Man" you won't find it here, but it's still enjoyable. Note: the body count rivals any Rambo movie. But, it's a rollicking enjoyable mystery that almost outlives most of the characters, and the acting and production quality are very good. This was the first "Paul Temple" adventure I've heard and I did download another right after finishing this one. Great to listen to while gardening or hiking.
