0671809598 From AudioFile The Man in the Queue is forty years old, but it could have been written today or eighty years ago. This variation on the "locked room" mystery, with a man stabbed to death in a crowded theater line, appeals to almost everyone. Tey's clever twists add to the suspense as Inspector Grant unravels the secrets of the murderer and his victim. Stephen Thorne's presentation wonderfully enhances the story; he handles men and women, as well as foreign and Cockney accents commendably. In light of the story's age, it's particularly amusing to hear the unchanging but humorous views that seem to be universally held about law enforcement and the police. Listen for them! S.G.B.

Review ?Inspector Alan Grant?painstakingly, fascinatingly identifies the body, then chases suspects up to the Highlands of Scotland and all around the town.? ?

Über diesen Titel


"The Man in the Queue" is the first case for Scotland Yard Inspector Grant who was to become the hero of five of Josephine Tey's mystery novels. Josephine Tey was in fact a pseudonym for the Scottish author Elizabeth Mackintosh. It is set in London and is concerned with a mysterious murder that is committed whilst people are queuing in front of the Woofington Theatre to see the final performance of Didn't You Know? starring Ray Marcable, the sensation of the moment. Written over 80 years ago, in 1929, this crime novel has aged amazingly well and is mostly concerned with the personalities and motivations of the characters.

From the Inside Flap:

Outside a London theatre a throng of people wait unexpectantly for the last performance of a popular musical. But as the doors open at last, a man in the queue is found murdered by the deadly thrust of a stiletto.
