Too Dead to Swing

This book is more like an old time radio show with different players and great music. The plot was good like an old mystery series with a twist at the end.

great performance

This was so much fun to listen to! A complete cast, sound effects and some great music. The story was good and the perfomance was alot of fun. A nice change from other audio books.

Excellent old style radio play

If like me you love old style murder mystery radio plays this is definitely for you.
Filled with great characters, lots of murders and swing jazz playing in the background!

Enjoyable story but expected more music !

Whilst the story is credible and has the usual murder mystery twists etc I have to say i was a little disappointed at the lack of music considering this was supposed to be a musical mystery. It took an hour and a half before the first song was played and only three songs featured throughout the drama. The narrator was cut in a forties style which worked well but she was a little monotonous and I found myself drifting away from the story at times. Still worth my 99p special offer credit though !
