Set against the distressing and heavy backdrop of the first World War, Hardcastle’s Mandarin is another classic murder mystery from Graham Ison. When a high-ranking civil servant is murdered, Detective Inspector Earnest Hardcastle is called upon to investigate. It is not until another, seemingly isolated, murder that Hardcastle begins to realize there is perhaps something larger afoot. Performed with a lively enthusiasm by veteran David Thorpe, and filled with a unique perspective from an author that has spent over 30 years in the Scotland Yard, Hardcastle’s Mandarin is an audiobook not to be missed.
