9781933397047: The Killings at Badger's Drift (Inspector Barnaby)

Badger's Drift is an ideal English village, complete with vicar, bumbling local doctor, and kindly spinster with a nice line in homemade cookies. But when the spinster dies suddenly, her best friend kicks up an unseemly fuss, loud enough to attract the attention of Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby. And when Barnaby and his eager-beaver deputy start poking around, they uncover a swamp of ugly scandals and long-suppressed resentments seething below the picture-postcard prettiness. In the grand tradition of the quietly intelligent copper, Barnaby has both an irresistibly dry sense of humor and a keen insight into what makes people tick.

About the Author:

Graham won the Macavity Award, for Best First Mystery of 1988, for The Killings at Badger's Drift. The Inspector Barnarby mysteries have been made into a television series (the "Midsomer Murders") and broadcast on both British and American TV.

From AudioFile:

Although octogenarian Miss Simpson's death seems a natural one, her closest friend believes otherwise. DCI Barnaby investigates. Hugh Ross does a marvelous job with the narration! The accents and tone of voice are perfect for each character. Without missing a beat, he slips easily from Miss Simpson's cultured speech to the affectations of the local undertaker and his domineering mother. Through Graham's text, Ross easily puts us in the middle of a small village. An engaging reader, and one to search out. D.M.W.An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
