9780099363804: Love lies Bleeding

Castrevenford School is preparing for Speech Day and Professor Gervase Fen is called upon to present the prizes. However, the night before the big day, strange events take place that leave two members of staff dead. The Headmaster turns to Professor Fen to investigate the murders. While disentangling the facts of the case, Fen is forced to deal with student love affairs, a kidnapping and a lost Shakespearean manuscript. By turns hilarious and chilling, Love Lies Bleeding is a classic of the detective genre.

About the Author:

Stephen Thorne trained at RADA and played several seasons with the Old Vic Company and the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford and London. He has worked extensively in radio, with over two thousand broadcasts for the BBC, including Uncle Mort in the Radio 4 comedy series and the part of Treebeard in "The Lord of the Rings". His television work includes "EastEnders", "Boys from the Bush", "Death of an Expert Witness", and "David Copperfield".

From AudioFile:

A pair of murders keeps Professor Gervase Fen on his tippy toes in this classic 1948 mystery, which takes place at an exclusive British boarding school. Narrator Stephen Thorne romps through the cast of stuffy teachers and hysterical students--enjoying one accent after another. It's a treat to have such a trustworthy voice narrating, so one can just sit back and enjoy the production. Speech Day at Castrevenford School was never so exciting, and luckily Professor Fen is there to investigate trysts and a kidnapping, as well as a lost Shakespearean manuscript and locket. Luckily too, Stephen Thorne is there to jolly us along. B.H.B. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
