Aiding And Abetting

Aiding and Abetting

Aiding and Abetting
Author: Muriel Sparks
Read by Davina Porter
4 compact discs (4.5 hours approx.)

This novel was based on an actual murder case, becomes a fascinating mystery under Spark's sharp pen.

Lord Lucan disappeared in 1974, shortly after  murdering his children's nanny in a botched attempt to kill his wife.  Despite reports of sightings, no one konws for sure where the crafty fugitive is.  Noted psychiatrist Dr. Hildegard Wolf is intrigued when the two patients begin therapy with her---both claiming to be the notorious Lord Lucan.  It's not just the patients who have secrets, however.  The good doctor has also abandone a previous life.

*Personal notes--I had higher hopes for this book from reading the description but I found it kind've bland as far as mystery novels are concerned BUT the narrator does have an English accent which For me does make it a bit harder to get past accents sometimes when listening to books.
