East of Algiers

(1959)
(A book in the Paul Temple series)
A novel by

 
 
Crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and his glamorous wife Steve first appeared on BBC Radio in 1938. They inhabited a sophisticated world of 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 Temple's help with his latest tricky case. The radio serials proved so popular that Francis Durbridge was inspired to write a succession of novels featuring Paul Temple. In this one, read by 'Buffy' and 'Little Britain' star Anthony Head, a pair of spectacles spells trouble for the smooth sleuth. When Paul Temple agreed to do a favour for a friend of Steve, he could never have foreseen the extraordinary sequence of events that would be set in motion. For Judy Wincott's simple request that Paul return a pair of glasses to David Foster in Tunis is a prelude to a body in a Paris rubbish bin and a succession of mysterious killings..."Paul Temple East of Algiers" is a novelisation of the original radio drama "Paul Temple and the Sullivan Mystery". 'Eminently enjoyable listening' - "Daily Express". Anthony Head brings the great radio detective to life in this new reading of Francis Durbridge's classic novel.
