Publisher's Summary

Dorothy Martin's husband, a local police inspector, is out of town. On a trip to London for a doctor's appointment, Dorothy talks to a young man who, by the time the train reaches Victoria Station, is very dead. No one seems to think anything is amiss and the man who told her he was a doctor and would take care of everything seems to have done just that. The body has disappeared. Dorothy has a mystery on her hands and, with her husband in Zimbabwe, there's nothing to do but begin an investigation. She insinuates herself onto the staff of a computer software company and discovers not only a surprising killer but the lengths to which someone might go for the sake of a dream.

Entertaining, Easy Listen

For relaxing listening "cozy" mysteries are my favorites. The characters must appeal to me, the story must move along at a slightly brisk (though not break neck) speed, and there must be enough plot twists to hold my interest. This book met all my requirements. I had a thoroughly good time listening to it.
Narrator Kate Reading is excellent. I like the tone of her voice, and her diction is clear. She adds interest and energy to the story.
The only thing I slightly disliked was that the main character, Dorothy Martin, is an "amateur" sleuth who puts herself into a potentially dangerous situation to solve the crime. However, this is fiction, and all in good fun. I liked Dorothy so much I was only mildly bothered by her boldness.
There are more books in this series available on Audible and I expect I will listen to all of them.
This is not a "thriller". It does not include graphic violence or sex. If you enjoy English "cozies", this book is a good choice.

Dorothy Martin Does It Again

If you could sum up The Victim in Victoria Station in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining light mystery

What did you like best about this story?

A good mystery but no violence to speak of. Every one was quite civilized--even the murderer. (Especially the murderer)

Which scene was your favorite?

When Dorothy and friends were prowling around the offices where she was a fake receptionist to find evidence to accuse a murderer

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No

Any additional comments?

Typical "cottage" type English mystery except the heroine is American by birth and this took place in London. Have enjoyed her other books very much which on the whole I liked better.<br/>Character development was a bit weak in some instances.
