Publisher's Summary

On a cold February night, the police find the third corpse on the quayside in the Pool of London, her body covered with flower petals and pearls. The killer walked away, singing.

    "an easy listen"

    This was a pleasant listen, if somewhat dated in its attitude to women and homosexuality. Agatha Christie 'light' when you want something unchallenging to wash over you.

    Story
    "Reader a bit light"

    Anton Lessor is a good reader but his voice is a bit light for Inspector Alleyn who is described as having. A deep voice so I found him a little unbelievable. shame because I like the story. The unabridged version read by James Saxon is much better.
