. . . this is perhaps not one of Sayers's most memorable mysteries, but one of the few that is available. I wish that Audible carried more of her titles.

This is an excellent entry in the Sayers line of work with Lord Peter Wimsey, and the reading works well.
However, part of the text was left out. For one not already familiar with the story, the missing piece may cause a little confusion coming into the conclusion. On the other hand, maybe it wouldn't be noticeable to someone who hasn't reread most of Sayers' novels several times!

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I like the book enormously, but found the narration impossible. I gave up listening before the end of the third chapter, and have deleted it from my mp3 player to free space for something worth while.
What was most disappointing about Dorothy L. Sayers’s story?
The story is fine, but not as performed in this version - choose another narrator and enjoy it!
What didn’t you like about Nadia May’s performance?
The voices given to Wimsey and Bunter were completely inappropriate. Wimsey is a cultivated, upper class Englishman, not a vulgar cheeky chappy, and Bunter should be a properly self-effacing gentleman's gentleman.
Any additional comments?
I won't be buying other books narrated by Nadia May.

The reader of this is really not a very good reader. I found her extremely difficult to listen to.
