This episode is a pleasant who done it, of an accused man trying to prove he is innocent. It was a good listen overall. I really find it very helpful when people say if the episode was a good one or not. I want to say also that many people give away all the details and write complete synopsis of the episodes and though it may be appreciated by some, the whole pleasure of listening to the 45 minutes is to have it unfold without knowing what will happen in every act until the end. I wish people commenting would simply say if the episode was good, or some critique of it, without saying the whole plot. I tend to glance at the comments to see if an episode is deemed a good one by listeners and have to be careful not to see all the details some people write. Perhaps there can be a special section for people to write these full synopses so that they can't be seen until after we have heard them.


I agree with Melanie. W When I remember the story from my youth I am always happy that my memory is still acute.

I rate this as a four star episode. A complete and detailed synopsis of this plot: A man is released from prison on good behavior after serving a lengthy sentence for the murder of his best friend, who was rumored to been having an affair with his wife. But the supposed murderer has no memory of committing the murder, and begins investigating with the help of his son and daughter-in-law.

I’m not a fan of Evie Juster’s raspy voiced roles. She has taken on that voice in a few episodes and it comes across as too contrived, IMO. This episode did not capture my interest at all.


It is worth noting the amazing ability of Evie Juster to play the voice of the elderly housekeeper, Besty Groves, and also play the voice of the young Margot. Most listeners probably would not have realized that Evie Juster played both characters with such extremely different sounding voices.
