Tommy and Tuppence Beresford have just become the proud owners of an old house in an English village. Along with the property, they have inherited some worthless bric-a-brac, including a collection of antique books. While rustling through a copy of The Black Arrow, Tuppence comes upon a series of apparently random underlinings. However, when she writes down the letters, they spell out a very disturbing message: M a r yï¿¿J o r d a nï¿¿d i dï¿¿n o tï¿¿d i eï¿¿n a t u r a l l y.
Not one of her best
I have most of her audiobooks and this is the worst of them. By far. It isn't a real whodunnit, I kept waiting for the details of the crime and the characters involved but they didn't appear. It is more of a very slow and tedious detective novel. Not much of interest happens and when the conclusion comes you really don't care. There is no problem with the narration or quality of the sound. It is the quality of the book itself. Endless and pointless reminiscing and repetition. Tired, boring and frustrating. I don't know which book the 2 reviewers from the Observer and Times above read but it can't have been this one.
