Publisher's Summary

Perfect blue skies, a soft summer breeze, and a view to die for!

Lord Edgington of Cranley Hall has some living to do. The next item to cross off on his list of grand ambitions is a serene balloon flight above his palatial estate. But after a man falls to his death, the pleasant pursuit is interrupted, and the esteemed detective suspects foul play. 

With the help of his hapless grandson, their loyal golden retriever, and a couple of parachutes, Lord Edgington must solve the murder before the meddlesome police arrive to take control of the case. But when all of the suspects seem like such nice chaps, it's awfully difficult to spot a killer.

An Agatha Christie-style novella with a dash of Downton Abbey thrown in, Death from High Places is a spoiler-free 1920s whodunit that immediately follows Murder at the Spring Ball, the first novel in the best-selling Lord Edgington Investigates... series of mysteries.

Narrated by the actor George Blagden from the TV shows Vikings and Versailles, and the Oscar-winning film Les Miserables. Please note that this is a two-and-a-half-hour novella, not a full-length audiobook.

A very satisfactory novella!

I’m really pleased that the novella was also made into this audiobook, because George Blagden is absolutely superb in portraying all the characters.

I also like that it’s a standalone that doesn’t give anything but a passing mention of what has happened before and quite truly can be enjoyed for itself without having known what went on before. (By the way if you haven’t read or listened to the previous book, then you should definitely do so before reading/listening to this one - or immediately afterwards)!

It’s good to see the relationship between the two brothers, Albert and Christopher. They get on with each other really well (which you didn’t quite realise in book one).

The portrayal of Albert‘s friends was very well penned and there were a few characters that you loved or loved to hate! The nemesis police inspector makes a return, but he’s only there to pick up the pieces!

All in all a very satisfying story, now onto book 2.

Great Yarn !

I admit I wondered how intriguing a short Murder mystery could be .
Benedict Brown has done it again ! Plenty of characters to ponder
over …..love the discussions and unraveling of clues .
Satisfying listen .
