Publisher's Summary

Murder, mystery, and a dog of distinction. Heathcliff Lennox investigates.

Ladies' man, dandy, charming rogue, thief. Montague Morgan has a buccaneering reputation, and he doesn't give a damn–until he falls in love.

He has a plan, he needs money, and he knows how to get it. He and his lover conspire to escape to exotic lands with stolen gold.

But the gold belongs to dangerous people, and plans can go awry. Morgan disappears; has he escaped, or has he fallen prey to lethal retribution?

Lennox's friend ex-chief inspector Swift is embroiled, and Lennox steps in to help, but his wedding is fixed for Christmas Eve, and it's only a few days away. As the mystery around Montague Morgan deepens, so the tension rises....

Major Heathcliff Lennox–ex WW1 war pilot, six feet, three inches tall, tousled dark blond hair, age around 30–named after the hero of Wuthering Heights by his romantically minded mother–much to his great annoyance.

Not as good as previous ones

I enjoyed it, just found the characters and the story less interesting than the previous ones.

Not the best book in this series

Have enjoyed this series so far, usually tongue n cheek humour, and entertaining story. This book not so much. Also, the historically most excellent narrator is falling into the current habit of grating voice fry

Wanted to like this as much as the others.......

Totally have enjoyed all the previous where the main characters have been crafted to capture your attention and interest, Lennox and Swift spent over two thirds of this book yelling at each other. There was very little of the previous intelligent detective work, just yelling - reprimanding. No reflecting just yelling - did I forget to say yelling at each other and others? It was with great anticipation that I started this book ready to settle in with old friends - I was left so uncomfortable I couldn't wait for it to end. I was not amused or entertained. The convoluted tale not worthy of a credit. Was there a deadline to meet, an editor missed editing - something was totally off in this book. Sad.

So disappointed

I have always enjoyed the Heathcliff Lennox books. Some are quite complicated but I love the inclusion of Mr Fogg and mr Tubbs. This one turned out yo be dirty pool. To spring such a tawdry conclusion on the listener is completely unacceptable. I will be returning this book.

Read all 7

I truly enjoy this series, it’s very good. Some it is excellent.

HL character should improve, being an idiot at times wears on me. He’s a small part comedian but his fumbling does irritate me.

Swift, his partner in crime, should always act as former DCI. I get irritated when goes away from that role.

To the author: The two together make a good team, please have them mature as you move forward.

Can’t wait for the next book.

Great fun and excellent narration!

Though the above description may sound strange for a murder mystery, it is true. There are some sad moments (murder, as well as other crimes), but Ms. Menuhin manages to balance the humor with the difficult issues without being flippant. Sam Dewhurst-Phillips is the perfect narrator for these books. His ability to portray the voice of Heathcliff Lennox while providing seemingly endless distinctive voices for the other characters is astounding. Enjoy!

Another Great Story

I love the humor that is weaved into the characters personalities. The continuation of Heathcliff Lennox' adventures was worth the wait. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Lots to love and lots not to love...

I really like this series. It's very entertaining and I've listened to all of the previous books. This was my least favorite because it had far too much wasted dialog between the characters. It made the storyline too convoluted and confusing. The narration was perfect, as usual. Still looking forward to the next book.

Not recommended

The narrator’s delivery is too slow paced and he might learn how to pronounce ‘parquet’. The story feels padded to lengthen it, characterisations are poor. I will not be purchasing another novel by Karen Baugh Menuhin

Perfectly Narrated. Enjoyable Stories.

I have enjoyed all of this series of books.
The narrator has a fabulous voice. The books are gentle and about another era, perfect for a bedtime listen. Love the dog and cat and dearly hope they live on in further books to a ripe old age.

THIS ONE IS HARD WORK

I have thoroughly enjoyed all of these books until this one, sadly.
I found this one tedious and was in no hurry to resume listening. I still haven’t completed it.
I find it very sad as I’d got very fond of all the characters and their adventures.

Another fantastic outing for our duo

Another great story brilliantly written and read by Sam Dewhurst-Phillips with twists and turns throughout getting you to rethink who dunnit. Lennox and Swift once again sort out all the clues to get to the truth. And then right at the end the wedding we have been waiting for.

Absolutely Fabulous!

Wonderful story that kept me guessing to the end. I finished it in a day it was so compelling. Laced with moments of humour throughout which made the book even more enjoyable. The narration was sublime! Congratulations Sam Dewhurst-Phillips! Congratulations to Karen Baugh Menuhin also for creating such wonderful characters and entertaining stories! I highly recommend all the titles in this series. Woof!
