Joining Charles Adrian for the 15th Second-Hand Book Factory is Jessie Greengrass, who describes herself as misanthropic and grumpy. They celebrate detective fiction at length – it turns out that they are both huge fans of detective stories. Who knew? There is a noise warning attached to the second piece of music played, which is a tale of drawn-out frustration, and the last reading is done in an amazing Kentish-type accent.
More detective fiction is discussed in Page One 63.
Another book by Georgette Heyer, The Unfinished Clue, is discussed in Page 30.
