Tony Medawar's Bodies in the Library whetted my appetite for lesser-known Golden Age crime fiction. Unfortunately, after my pre-order for this one went through (along with two other stories), I discovered they all appear in a collection called The Christmas Card Crime. Yes, I read that in the write-up for this story; no, it never occurred to me to see if that collection was available on Audible in its entirety. I felt pretty foolish until I listened to this one on the way home. The mystery is pretty much non-existent--any whodunnit that I can figure out halfway through is no mystery at all--and the recording, though performed by the gifted Gordon Griffin, suffers from an overbearing sibilance.

Great narration, so-so story

Granted it's only about 10 minutes in length. So you've got to get to it. The story held my interest, but fell flat at the end. The real positive with this Audible version was the excellent performance.
