Gregory Porlock’s party was a very successful one - from Gregory’s point of view. He was in the highest of spirits, and the fact that his guests were obviously not in a party mood only added to his enjoyment. He knew they all had good reason to fear and dislike him, and it amused him to play the part of the genial host, and to watch each of his visitors trying to act the part of a gay and carefree guest for the benefit of all the others. Gregory never knew that one of his visitors played two roles that evening, that someone doubled the part of guest and murderer, for in that drama Gregory Porlock was cast for a different role.

Fantastic, smart classic British mystery!
Having read all the other Patricia Wentworth books that Audible has released so far, and having become thoroughly addicted to these books, which are old fashioned classic mysteries that celebrate the values of kindness and goodness while also employing villains you love to hate with utterly quirky obsessions and manners, I thought that the best Wentworths were behind me--but no! Spotlight is one of Wentworth's very best, with a big cast of oddballs creating a witch's brew of fear, suspicion, envy, and hatred at an ill-considered house party. A very nice young heroine and her dashing gentleman-would-be-sweetheart provide the foils to the nasties. As always, superbly narrated by Diana Bishop. If you like the old fashioned but smart type of British mystery, don't miss this!
