Book cover: “The Cornish Coast Murder” by John Bude (Skeffington & Son, 1935); audiobook read by Ben Allen (Soundings, 2016)

A simply told, engaging mystery featuring an amateur detective (a vicar) and a police inspector working in loose collaboration. While Bude rather gropes towards an understanding of the genre, his protagonists do likewise with the crime. The audiobook reading is decidedly Cornish.
