Mystery in Australia

What made the experience of listening to The Clue of the New Shoe the most enjoyable?

The reader did a great job w/dialect and descriptions of Australia were interesting.

What did you like best about this story?

Understated mystery, minimum of explicit violence, and interesting local characters

Any additional comments?

Fun to listen to.
