Episode 6

Julian Rhind-Tutt reads Ian Sansom's new comic thriller, The Norfolk Mystery.

Sefton and Morley had set out to do field research for Morley's latest educational book - a guide to Norfolk. But they have been diverted by the death of the vicar in Blakeney. Morley is determined to get back on track though, so they pay a visit to a Miss Harris, a faded start of light opera. She shares with Morley some local myths and folk stories. With her regal manner, she 'measures out sentences as though she were handing out precious gifts.' She is also barely able to contain her disapproval for the late vicar; "He wore pullovers". Meanwhile Sefton hears shocking news about Hannah, and Lizzie tells him all of the local gossip about her and the vicar.
The Norfolk Mystery by Ian Sansom is abridged by Lauris Morgan-Griffiths.
Produced by: Sarah Langan.
