Sweet Danger is a campy sort of mystery, though the mystery really isn't much of a mystery. Campion is drool and amusing as he and a group of friends try to find the true heir to a piece of strategic property in a far off Balkan country. We get to meet the eccentric Finton family, in particular young Lady Amanda Finton, who scrape by running a mill. The Finton's hold the keys to the mystery. Lady Amanda likes to tinker with electricity, batteries, and radio. The bad guy and his cronies are obvious from the start.
Francis Matthews is a wonderful narrator. I prefer him to David Thorpe, whose Campion I find grating..

Well, we have a mysterious hero doing a mysterious job for his government. A few items must be found. A treasure hunt?
We have a disinherited member of nobility who is seeking recognition and his estates. A little Crusade history. A Demonic Doctor with an equisite cellar and a red haired lass who runs an electric car and a windmill. And the baddies also on a hunt.
It is a delightful listen. Not at all serious.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Another matchless performance from the late Francis Matthews. He captures the characters and the era perfectly. After I finished this I started listenng to another one narrated by David Thorpe.......very second rate ... Wish more Matthews recordings were available

Great Campion classic but stupid accent given to Albert and the reader couldn't keep himself from yawning (chapter 15)!
