Cast for Death , 5 hours 13 mins, read by Alexander John When his actor friend Sam Irwin ends up in the Thames instead of treading the boards in a new production of Macbeth, Dr Patrick Grant is soon embroiled in a mystery to test his literary and detective skills.Grant finds a chain of circumstances linking two suicides, the accidental death of a dog and a series of art robberies... Note that these rare recordings are from cassette tapes (except the first) that are in some cases quite old, thus the sound quality may not be pristine, but they are reasonably hiss free and clear. (This is a well written cozy British murder mystery series.) Enjoy and Seed!!
