    Inhaltsangabe

    August 1911. Emily Hardcastle and her inimitable lady’s maid Florence Armstrong are enjoying a fine summer until Harry, Lady H’s brother, turns up out of the blue with a mystery for them to solve.

    A routine parachute test at a local aeroplane factory has gone horribly wrong - with pilot Dickie Dupree plummeting to his death. Harry is certain there is more to this ‘tragic accident’ than meets the eye, having discovered that someone at the airfield is leaking top secret intelligence to foreign rivals.

    In between strolls to the Dog & Duck and planning for the annual village show, the daring duo dust off the Crime Board and go undercover at Bristol Aviation. With international powers investing heavily in aeronautics, the stakes are high - sky high - and the suspects soon mount up.

    Can Lady Hardcastle find the culprit before someone else falls down dead?

    Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award

    “This audiobook should have come with a warning: Listen at your own risk. If others try to pause it, you may snap their heads off in frustration. As Lady Hardcastle and her lady's maid, Flo, return to spying for England in the summer of 1911, narrator Elizabeth Knowelden enhances the story full of witticisms and a clever plot by immersing listeners in the lives of these two characters. Listeners will catch Flo's excitement as she discovers that her newest job requires investigation at an airfield where someone was recently killed.” --AudioFile Magazine

    like a little vacation!

    whilst one may miss dramatic twists and turns. for me the story isn't the star in this series of books. it's the characters and the way they and their dialogue is written that I absolutely adore. time and time again. the performance is equally important and beautiful!

    "Die tollkühnen Mädels ...

    ... in ihren fliegenden Kisten" - oder so ähnlich 😉 Sehr spannend und durchaus unerwartet. Und wieder ein Stück Dorfleben wunderbar geschildert. Elizabeth Knowelden spricht die verschiedenen Personen wunderbar verständlich (nicht selbstverständlich bei so unterschiedlichen Figuren!) und sie alle (vor allem der Gärtner!) entstehen dadurch bildhaft vor dem inneren Auge. Wann kommt der nächste Teil?

    Unfortunately the last of the series!

    Another thoroughly enjoyable Lady Hardcastle mystery. Marvelous wordplay. Again extremely well narrated by Elizabeth Knowelden.
