While on patrol outside Oxford, two policemen notice a stolen car parked in a layby. On further investigation, they discover the dead body of a young woman huddled in the boot, strangled with a headscarf. Planning a trip to Paris, Paul and Steve Temple have no intention of becoming involved in the case, dubbed the Tyler Mystery. But when Sir Graham Forbes discloses that the main suspect is Harry Shelford, a man Paul put away for fraud four years previously, the Temples feel compelled to investigate.

Crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and his glamorous wife Steve made their first appearance on BBC Radio in 1938. They inhabited a sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women were chic and the men wore cravats, a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Paul Temple's help with his latest tricky case. The radio serials proved so popular that Francis Durbridge was inspired to write a succession of novels featuring the smooth sleuth. This thrilling story, read by Buffy and Little Britain star Anthony Head, sees Paul putting himself and Steve in grave danger as they attempt to slve a murder.

    " A clever whodunit, but one I found too wrapped up in 1950s upper-middle class snobbery and outdated gender politics. "
