Loveday Brooke in the Murder at Troyte's Hill
"Brooke is a crime-solving genius — knowledgeable, preternaturally perceptive, skilled at undercover work and versed in the minutiae of invisible ink."
"This story is wonderfully adapted for We Happy Few by Kerry McGee, with Miss Brooke coming into her own as a radio detective and with just a touch of the noir along with the Victorian."
"The audience gets to play along...opening four different envelopes bearing evidence (a clues packet is sent to each ticket buyer) as the story progresses. We Happy Few has added a few additional touches to keep things atmospheric: a copy of the local paper, even a cup of tea that listeners are encouraged to brew as they mull over clues."
"We Happy Few has created another gem of simple entertainment that can engage and whisk the audience away from the real world for a short while."
