This is another of the lovely 'period' mysteries, whose depiction of time and place is a pleasure in itself. This was a world in which it was necessary to explain what the rearview mirror in a car was, and what it was for; in which tobacco was a universal solace and a celebration supper still consisted of mutton.
But this is also a very cleverly-plotted mystery, with several twists that I didn't foresee (including the last one, which came as a real surprise). The character of Trent is mildly attractive, being a classic, slightly eccentric gentleman sleuth. One does not become deeply engaged with any of the characters, but they are interesting and sympathetic enough to hold ones interest.
The narrator did a excellent job, with good pacing and a pleasant voice. He manages to make the characters distinctive, without straining to 'act them out' in a literal sense.
I found this an unusually enjoyable listen, one of the best of its genre. A real pleasure.
