Summary

A bookish puzzle threatens an eagerly awaited inheritance, a submission to a publisher recounts a murder that seems increasingly to be a work of nonfiction, an irate novelist puts a grisly end to the source of his writer’s block. 

There is no better hiding place for clues - or red herrings - than inside the pages of a book. With Martin Edwards as librarian and guide, delve into an irresistible stack of tales perfect for every book lover and armchair sleuth, featuring much-loved Golden Age detectives such as Nigel Strangeways, Philip Trent and Detective Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn. But listeners should be warned that the most riveting tales often conceal the deadliest of secrets....
