Julian Rhind-Tutt reads Ian Sansom's new comic thriller, The Norfolk Mystery.
Morley and Sefton are keen to meet the person who painted a disturbing and lustful portrait of the maid, Hannah. Their next enquiries take them to the local shop where their best efforts at discrete enquiry are thwarted by a big man wielding a cricket bat. Then, Morley is harangued into attending a sherry party hosted by the Thistle Smiths, where he is a fish out water. Sefton discovers that the aged Mrs Thistle Smith has a teenage son. Meanwhile, the professor makes the fatal mistake of ragging Morley.
The Norfolk Mystery by Ian Sansom is abridged by Lauris Morgan-Griffiths.
Produced by: Sarah Langan.
