Another intriguing case for radio's smoothest sleuth and his glamorous wife.
From 1938 to 1969, crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and his Fleet Street journalist wife, Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular series. They inhabit a sophisticated, well dressed world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women are chic and the men still wear cravats. And where Sir Graham Forbes of Scotland Yard always needs Paul's help with a tricky case - and the Spencer Affair proves to be trickier than most.
When a young drama student Mary Dreisler is found murdered in her flat, her father instantly sends for Paul Temple. There appears to have been no struggle, no robbery . . . no motive. The only possible clue is a package that arrives for the dead girl. It contains a gramophone record called "My Heart and Harry" and a note " Adored every minute of it - Spencer".
Who is Spencer? Does the song have anything to do with the murder? If anyone can find the answer, Paul can.
