This is the BBC audio dramatisiation, so there are multiple voices involved and split across 8 episodes.

The dubious sound effects and the (over) acting can be a little hilarious at times, but gives an indication of what the radio actors had to deal with at the time in order to keep people interested.

The story concentreated around Paul and Steve staying in a remote village so that Paul can write his next book. However, they soon get embroiled in the disappearance of the daughter of the chief of MI5, and then through to a drug smuggling gang. People seem to be wanting to kill Steve (mistaking someone else instead), and people are seen where they shouldnt be, and people arent who they appear to be. Paul has to work out what is going on and who wants to kill both him and Steve. ( )

They inhabited a sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women were chic and the men wore cravats - a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Paul's help with his lastest tricky case.

A pleasant boat trip turns into a nightmare when their craft gets shot at - and the boatman himself is later discovered drowned at sea. Back in London, the daughter of the head of C15 has disappeared, and Sir Graham brings the matter to Paul's attention. Could there be a connection between this and the events in Downburgh? In finding out, Paul and Steve find they are in peril once again.… (more)
