Publisher's Summary

Are librarians meek and mild bookish types with orthopedic shoes and granny glasses? Or are they ruthless killers with voracious appetites for wine, women, and song?

Can a young widow solve a murder with the help of a Chicago policeman and an affinity for Sherlock Holmes?

The Murder in the Library reveals all.

It is elementary, my dears.

Okay...

I love the story itself. And enjoyed the characters. But I nearly didn't finish it. The narrator did the whole book in nearly a monotone voice. There was little to no emotion in his voice. Maybe I am spoiled but usually there is some inflections or changes in characters voices but here was pretty much none.

Sorry Mr Bufton

The book is excellent. so much so that I struggled through the monotone narration to finish it. What a shame that a poor narrator can have such an impact. I will be looking out for Mr Bufton in future to ensure I do not purchase another book narrated by him.
The actual book is great and I enjoyed the story, with its mystery plot and good characters, highly recommended.
