Audio Book Month - The Case of the Missing Bronte

Good Afternoon Bookworms


To continue my series of posts for audio book month this afternoon I'm reviewing The Case of the Missing Bronte by Robert Barnard.  This is the third DS Perry Trethowon novel.



I was intrigued by the title of this one and it was written in a time (1980s) before mobile phones and the internet which adds to the charm.  This is a literary mystery with a lovely element of humour.


Robert Barnard has written many books but this my first read listen of one.  This was a really easy listen and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  

Scotland Yard Superintendent Perry Trethowan is enjoying a vacation evening at a cozy Yorkshire pub when an old woman shows him an original, unpublished Bronte manuscript. Trethowan agrees to engage in a little literary detective work, but he doesn't realize that for a criminal the manuscript is motive for theft, torture and murder.

  1. Sounds very intriguing , and the fact it is set before Mobile phones and the internet
    i think will keep you on edge as it will take longer for the police to uncover
    anything if that makes sense.
