Review by

One of my favourites, in book form, and pretty well done for the radioplay, too. I always want to see more of the recurring characters, though at least Bunter's reasonably prominent in this one -- still, I felt the lack of the Parkers and Harriet. Peter's struggles with finding the real culprit when the victim is so unpleasant are pretty poignant, and his realisation of the actual situation is well dramatised.<br/><br/>There was less about the technical side of bell-ringing in the audio adaptation, which was probably wise considering the medium, but I'm looking forward to rereading The Nine Tailors in full and seeing what I make of the bells this time round.
