The Benson Murder Case by S.S. Van Dine (1888-1939)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page:
http://legamus.eu/blog/?p=177

New York dilettante Philo Vance decides to assist the police in investigating the death of another man-about-town because he finds the psychological aspects of the crime of interest and feels that they would be beyond the capacities of the police, even those of his friend District Attorney Markham. Vance investigates the circumstances under which the body was found and reconstructs the crime sufficiently to determine that the murderer is five feet, ten and a half inches in height. Together, Vance and Markham investigate Benson's business associates and romantic interests until Vance manages to pierce the murderer's alibi for the time of the murder and force a confession.

Sounds like a nice project.
I'm you MC for this project. MW is prepared. To give you access to the google doc we use for this I need your email address. May I take the one you used to register here or would you prefer another one? It shouldn't be your most personnel private address.

Oops, well, no pressure, Nadine. But it's been a rainy day and my dog's been quiet. I've got chapter 3 up now. I'll just post them as they come now without mentioning it.
