Publisher's Summary

In the seeming tranquility of Regency Square in Cheltenham live the diverse inhabitants of its 10 houses. One summer's evening the square's rivalries and allegiances are disrupted by a sudden and unusual death - an arrow to the head, shot through an open window at no. 6. Unfortunately for the murderer, an invitation to visit had just been sent by the crime writer Aldous Barnet, staying with his sister at no. 8, to his friend Superintendent Meredith. Three days after his arrival, Meredith finds himself investigating the shocking murder. Six of the square's inhabitants are keen members of the Wellington Archery Club, but if Meredith and Long thought that the case was going to be easy to solve, they were wrong....

Very Entertaining Book

The story was really good and the narrator was brilliant. A great bit of escapism.

A tantalizing plot!

A masterful work of literature that made me cling to a discrepancy in the evidence for half the book to prove I had correctly deduced the murderer.

What a wonderful tale he spins

This is the fifth book I have listened to by this author and not one of them has been a disappointment, I really do like the narrator, he should get the equivalent of an oscar, or maybe he had, well read well written well done. Give me more
