Publisher's Summary

Two of John Bude's finest Golden Age mysteries return to the limelight. 

In Death in White Pyjamas a theatre-owner, a 'slightly sinister' producer, a burgeoning playwright and a cast of ego-driven actors have gathered at a country home to read through a script. But before the production reaches the stage, one of their number is found murdered in the grounds wearing what seems to be somebody else's white pyjamas. 

And in Death Knows No Calendar, detective-fiction enthusiast Major Tom Boddy is investigating a deadly shooting with no shooter in a locked artist's studio. There are four colourful suspects to scrutinise, and not one but two 'impossible' elements of the crime to solve.

Good mysteries and lots of fun

These were well constructed mysteries with plenty of humor, and a little bit of romance. The reader isn't perfect (sometimes pauses in the wrong place or has the wrong emphasis in a sentence, but this could have to do with the quality of the formatting of the text he is reading, who knows?) but his characterizations are good, and his accents are perfect. FYI - The chapter feature doesn't say where one book ends and the second one starts, so here it is: Death in White Pyjamas: Chapters 1 - 20 Death Knows No Calendar: Chapters 21 - 40

Poor

First of all this is not a whodunnit. I did finish this book but only because it was a 2 story for 1 credit offer. The reading takes around 6 hours and almost the first 5 hrs are pure waffle that could have been cut down to an hour. Characters are all stereotypes and predictable. When the murder finally occurs it is blatantly obvious who is guilty with no surprises or twists. Even the method of the murder which you have no chance to work out because there are no clues pointing to it is far fetched. The narration is pretty bad which makes the whole thing worse. Needless to say I will not be listening to the second book.
