Another fun mystery solved by Gum and his friends

James "Gum" Shoo is back with his friends, finding themselves involved in another mystery. This time, they're in a museum, and the object of interest is a painting. Noticing something odd about the painting, Gum and his friends put themselves on the case. Will they be able to convince the museum security guard that a crime really has been committed, or will the thief get away?

Steve Brezenoff delivers another great mystery, and the anonymous narrator delivers another great performance. Having listened to several of Brezenoff's mysteries, I have yet to listen to one that I didn't like, and one of the best things about the mysteries is that they don't take a huge time commitment. You get a fun story in less than an hour, and while there's not a lot of character development in each story, you do get a good amount of character development spread out among all the stories. So, by the time you've listened to 4 or 5 of them, you have a pretty good idea of the characters involved.

I will definitely be listening to most of Brezenoff's mysteries in the future.
