About the book:
It is the greatest ever selection of fictional detectives, all together in one superb CD collection. Find Sherlock Holmes with his long suffering colleague, Dr. Watson in "The Dying Detective", Father Brown as a witness in court in "The Man in the Passage", and J.G. Reeder in "The Poetical Policeman" and "The Green Mamba". In "Chimes", a very clever story by Dam Muriel Spark, her hitherto undiscovered detective will keep you guessing right up to the surprise ending. Popular favourite Inspector Morse features in "The Burglar" by Colin Dexter. Discover Nicholas Blake's intellectual young toff sleuth Nigel Strangeways in "The Assassin's Club", and the very eccentric antique dealer and psychic Morris Klaw in "Sax Rohmer's" unusual and memorable story set in a museum. There's something for everybody in this brilliantly baffling collection to keep listeners of all ages in suspense. Narrator Edward Hardwicke was a British actor most famous for his role as Dr Watson opposite Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes in the popular 1980s television series.
