This is a short mystery from the classic period of British Detective Periodicals. No the greatest story, but interesting. The narration by Gordon Griffin was first rate. I knew Ronald Knox as a convert to Catholicism and his theological writings. I did not know he was a fan of detective/mystery fiction. I enjoyed this Audible presentation.
