Everything about this book is sooo very classic English!! The characters are so very controlled, so very patient and so very interesting. The narrator captures each perfectly. Although the reader is able to figure out the darkness of the plot early on, the journey to the end of the book is well worth the time.

Any additional comments?
This is really a rather good story. As previous reviewers have noted, the story extends for a period of over a decade, the nature of the crime and its possible solution becoming clear slowly. Much of the story centres on archaeological endeavour, and as a professional archaeologist this book makes slightly uncomfortable reading as the oddities of the profession in the 1920s (and indeed today) are gently, and with justification, ridiculed. I will certainly buy more books by this author. An excellent narrator too.

I have read or listened to most of the British Library classics and this is one of the best in my opinion. Gripping story and an unusual storytelling method which worked very well. Also I found the narration complimented the story perfectly
