Excellent Appleby, excellently read. I don't really feel the need to review it, but I do feel the need for Audible to get the title right.

Anyone who has read an Appleby mystery before knows what to expect - classic english country house type setting with clear distinctions between those upstairs and those downstairs. This is a classic one of those with, indeed, a house party in the house of a famous author who is possibly being wound up or possibly being driven towards a breakdown by a series of jokes and more sinister events. Appleby here is early on in his career and it is his sister who gets him involved just as the author's son is getting his university tutor and a psychologist entangled at the same time. The story, possibly because of the sheer length of this recording, loses it a bit towards the end and I had to go back and relisten to work out exactly what had happened. I find these mysteries seem to climax rather quickly compared to the length of the build up. Apart from that this is really good.

dragged out and uneventful story, containing too many unecessary philosophical discussions
which confuse and detract from the plot
