Would you try another book from Josephine Tey and/or Jennifer M. Dixon?
Up until now I have loved Josephine Tey's books, but this story and narration is so relentlessly boring, that I am beside myself as to how to describe my disappointment. What a waste of time and money to purchase.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Nothing linked to a Jennifer M. Dixon narration you can be sure!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
She added a greater dullness to the entire listening experience.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Give us more to select from Josephine Tey's body of work, and please give us first rate narrators, instead of this lackluster offering. The other two selections Audible offers are brilliant...namely ''Brat Farrar'' and ''The Franchise Affair'', both well narrated by Carolyn Boyd.

Josephine Tey is one of the legends of The Golden Age of pre-war British detective fiction. She is poorly represented on Audible, her most well known books not available (The Daughter of Time, for example). Unfortunately, the narrator here is not up to par, reading in a sleep-inducing monotone. High time for a new recording with a livelier narrator!
