#01. A Question of Proof (1935), 6hrs 47 mins
In the first book in the Nigel Strangeways classic crime series, an obnoxious schoolboy is found dead at his school Sports Day. Can amateur detective Nigel Strangeways help find the killer? A Question of Proof (1935) is the first of fifteen Strangeways stories written by Nicholas Blake over a period of nearly thirty years. Common sense might suggest that the best way to read a series is to begin at the beginning. Nonetheless, although A Question of Proof is interesting in that we meet the young Nigel Strangeways, many of his best stories come later. A Question of Proof is not unlike other mysteries from the 1930s in that the setting (in this case, Sudeley preparatory school) is populated by an abundance of suspects. Algernon Wyvern-Wemyss, a most unpopular student, is found strangled. A young instructor, Michael Evans, is on the list of suspects for this heinous crime. Nigel Strangeways is asked to investigate the murder on behalf of the school, a task made more difficult as Evans and Strangeways were good friends during their school years at Oxford.

Undaunted, O'Brien throws a Christmas party, inviting everyone who could be suspected of making the threats, along with private detective Nigel Strangeways. But despite Nigel's presence, the former pilot is found dead, just as predicted, and Nigel is left to aid the local police in their investigation while trying to ignore his growing attraction to one of the other guests - and suspects - explorer Georgina Cavendish. Thou Shell of Death is a dazzlingly complex and addictive listen, laced with literary allusions, from a master of detective fiction.
