Dorothy L Sayers – Striding Folly


Three of Lord Peter Wimsey’s most baffling cases demonstrate his unique detection skills at their most spectacular.

The engima of a house numbered thirteen in a street of even numbers; an indignant child accused of theft; a dream about a game of chess that uncovers the true story behind a violent death. Each of the stories introduces a different side of the twentieth century’s most ingenious detective hero.

I AM- WITH OUT A DOUBT – A HUGE FAN OF RAYMOND CHANDLER’S WORK. HE SET THE STANDARD FOR AMERICAN PRIVATE DETECTIVE FICTION, AND HAS RARELY BEEN SURPASSED. AND FINALLY AUDIBLE PRESENTS CHANDLER’S WORK AS IT SHOULD BE PRESENTED, WITH A TOP NOTCH ACTOR READING CHANDLER’S WORDS. ELLIOT GOULD IS THE ACTOR HERE, AND HE DOES A WONDERFUL JOB CAPTURING CHANDLER’S DETECTIVE’S DROLL HUMOR BY GIVING US A DEADPAN DELIVERY. THIS IS NO DRAMATIZATION FULL OF DIFFERENT ACTORS DOING VOICES, AND SOUND EFFECTS. THIS IS WHAT RAYMOND CHANDLER WROTE, AND IS PERFORMED WITH PITCH PERFECT ACCURACY BY THE NARRATOR. JUMP ON BOARD THIS ONE. YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED.
