Publisher Description

From the author of the Inspector Morse series, a short story about a freelance investigator and what should be a simple case. Mrs. Isobel Rodgers is an investigator's perfect client: beautiful, wealthy, and offering a straightfoward assignment. Mrs. Rodgers suspects her husband of an affair, and it's up to the investigator to determine the object of Mr. Rodger's affections. For someone with brilliant deductive powers, this should be an open-and-shut case-but Mrs. Rodgers may know more than she's letting on. "The Other Half" by Colin Dexter is one of 20 short stories within Mulholland Books's Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives.

  • “Narrator Graeme Malcolm entrances listeners with the investigator’s probe of Dennis Rodgers. The story’s title, “The Other Half,” takes on a double meaning when Isobel turns over a partial letter as a clue in the case against her other half. Malcolm artistically depicts the torn missive with jagged rips in his reading. This Holmesian-style mystery, included in Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series, is a mere quarter of hour, perfect for a short drive or other limited listening situation. It can also be paired with other stories from the series for a longer audio immersion in crime fiction.”
