The weakest of the Temples to date in that Durbridge seems to be struggling to adapt to Swinging London and the attitudes expressed now read as extremely dated Steve is very much a peripheral and empty figure rather than a hard boiled news reporter she seems to have been transformed into some sort of record sleeve designer whose main thought is staying slim and beautiful Her one moment of sleuthing is ridiculous in that she decides upon a spot of breaking and entering whilst retaining an armful of jangling bangles and reeking of a distinctive perfume that is swiftly spottedThe plot itself is nebulous although several bodies appear before the denouement and again it is Durbridge attempting to introduce sex into his story in order to keep up with contemporary attitudes Part of Temple s charm is that he belongs firmly in the post war era of deference and the gentleman sleuth not a world of egg shaped Swedish chairs and mini skirts a world in which in spite of Durbridge s efforts the perennially youthful Paul struggles to fitIn spite of this being little than 140 pages it was a struggle to read within a week a huge contrast with the earlier lengthier novels which are easily finished within a day or so Overall this was an immense disappointment

CHARACTERS Paul Temple and the Kelby Affair FREE DOWNLOAD Ó Paul Temple and the Kelby Affair SUMMARY ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Francis Durbridge Vestigate the mysterious disappearance of Alfred Kelby Reed had entrusted Kelby with a sensational diary written by Margaret Spender the mistress of Lord Dela containing several clues pointing. Another Paul Temple case about a missing diary and of course a murderI normally love the Paul Temple mysteries but this was a struggle to get through perhaps because I usually listen to the BBC full dramatisations and this one is simply narratedFor starters there were too many characters who I just couldn t distinguish and I had to replay sections again and again to get some idea of who was being followed threatened and murdered His wife Steve also voiced some strange feminist thoughts about still being able to support herself That never seemed to have worried her before though Maybe because it was set in the 1970s and life was changing Somehow it just didn t seem like a true Paul Temple mysteryI think I just found it all a bit strange and confusing and unlike the other cases I doubt I would listen to this one again
