Publisher's Summary

Were you aware that there are, hidden in the streets of Brighton, 12 ancient constellations, like the Hangleton Hound and the Bevendean Bat? Well, there are, and on each one hangs a tale, a tale so strange that only The Lad himself, that inveterate spinner of tales and talker of the toot, Hugo Rune, can get to the bottom of them. And he'd better do it quickly, because if he doesn't solve the dozen mysteries before the year is out, that'll be the end of the world as we know it.

A good car listen.

I agree with the other comment about dougless adams - he's very similar and probably more "pythonesque". Off the wall fun with good repeat gags. I am glad this is published as I missed the radio series. Thanks Audible - a good selection.

Delightfully silly!

Well-written, well-acted, and laugh-out-loud funny! I loved every minute of it. Take one part 'Nero Wolfe and Archie', one part 'Monty Python', and one part 'golden age adventure comic', mix well, and garnish with dry British sarcasm. Delicious!

Be aware that the last 40 minutes are outtakes and interviews, which are also quite entertaining if you know to expect them; no, there isn't a secret 'nother episode, it's the Director's Cut extras.
