Publisher's Summary

Two journalists, Peter Langley and James Vincent, are recuperating from winter colds at the Majestic Hotel in Newcliff-on-Sea one February when they get mixed up in a murder mystery: Peter is on the scene just after Howard Impey, theatrical impresario, is shot in Kenneth Paisley’s hotel room, the night before the opening of the latter’s new play starring the beautiful Anna Worthington.
Peter is unimpressed with the police investigation, so he and James follow their own leads and uncover several vital clues, in which the police don’t seem to be very interested. The inquest concludes that it was an accidental shooting by a now vanished hoodlum, but Peter remains unconvinced…although with the evidence pointing so many different ways, will he believe the incredible truth when he discovers it?

NOW I get it!

The audio sample seemed pretty good, so I was baffled by the low rating here. However, now that I'm finished, I have to report that it was a real chore getting through this one -- proof that a great narrator can't save a weak story.
