Narrator Anne Dover admirably conveys Yorkshire in 1929 as feisty private investigator Kate Shackleton investigates a body found on a train amid a rhubarb delivery to London. Shackleton goes north and poses as a photojournalist staying with wealthy friends. Dover's appealing Shackleton is joined by her exuberant assistants, Mrs. Sugden, who has a down-to-earth perspective and tone, and Mr. Sykes, an "I told you so" kind of fellow. The powerful dialogue enhances the story's tension when a local murder finds Shackleton going against her rich friends and powerful forces to save an impoverished innocent man. Historical facts, a look at the lives of the prosperous and the poor, and an appealing locale make for an enjoyable and informative listening experience.
