5 mysteries from an author new to most listeners and written in the Patricia Highsmith (“Strangers on a Train”) and Sue Grafton style, plus the classic short story, The Speckled Band.
Five Tom Walker mysteries are in the style of Patricia Highsmith and Sue Grafton. As in Strangers on the Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley by Highsmith, the bad guys become more sympathetic and often have a good result. As with Sue Grafton, the works are in alphabetical order to follow the development of the same core group of characters. A few come and go, but most of them remain important to the stories. The Five works provide a fresh author operating in a non-thriller save the world mode, more in the Dick Francis/Agatha Christie smaller landscape. The Five are: 18, Abduct, Body, Comfortable, Enthusiast and Greed. The Speckled Band is added as the jewel of all detective fiction, perhaps the best story of all time. Narrated in an American voice for easier understanding for those of us across the pond, in the US.
