The Attenbury Emeralds

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
January 2011
9 hours 35 minutes
The recovery of the magnificent gem in Lord Attenbury's dazzling heirloom launched a shell-shocked young aristocrat on his career as a detective in 1921. Thirty years later, a happily married Lord Peter has just shared the secrets of that mystery with his wife, the detective novelist Harriet Vane. Suddenly, the new Lord Attenbury—grandson of Lord Peter's first client—seeks his help to prove who owns the emeralds. As Harriet and Peter contemplate the changes that the war has wrought on English society—and Peter, who always cherished the liberties of a younger son, faces the unwanted prospect of ending up the Duke of Denver after all.

Edward Petherbridge reprises his role as Lord Peter in this continuation of Dorothy Sayer's collection by Jill Paton Walsh. Though I enjoy Ian Carmichael's version of Lord Peter in the BBC series, I love the melancholy tone Mr Petherbridge brings to his post-war character, and in his rendition of Harriet I am almost hear Dame Harriet Walter's voice.
