Summary

Crime author Dick Markham is in love again; his fiancée, Lesley Grant, the mysterious newcomer to the village. When Grant accidentally shoots a fortune teller through the side of his tent at the local fair - following a very strange reaction to his predictions - Markham is reluctantly brought into a scheme to expose his betrothed as a suspected serial husband-poisoner. That night the enigmatic fortune teller - and chief accuser - is found dead in an impossible locked-room setup, casting suspicion onto Grant and striking doubt into the heart of her lover. Lured by the scent of the impossible case, Dr Gideon Fell arrives from London to examine the perplexing evidence and match wits with a meticulous killer at large.

Very Nice

I will always buy John Dickson Carr's books because I adore locked room mysteries and he was Master of them.

This is an early one and I have to admit that I knew who'd done it because I'd read a short story version of the book. However, the full length book is more detailed and interesting.

I prefer Jonathan Keeble as a narrator for Carr's books but Kris Dyer did a passable job, although sometimes it was hard to tell who was speaking.

All in all, it was a fun listen and I'd thoroughly recommend it.

Couldn't finish it

Slow story with over-the-top narration meant I had trouble going back to the book, until I decided to just abandon it.
