Paul Temple and the Curzon Case (A Paul Temple Mystery) - Francis Durbridge

This was a very short novelisation of an original Paul Temple radio broadcast adventure.

The novelisation was well written and the main characters of Paul Temple and his wife, Steve, had all of the charme of the characters I loved from the radio programme. However, the story was rather short but, when compared to other Paul Temple stories, surprisingly original. I doubt, however, that it will be a memorable story.

I’m not sure if I will return to the novelisations or stick to the recordings. As much as I love the idea of the novelisations and the covers of this particular series, the dramatised version of Durbridge’s stories works better for me. But again, this should not be a surprise as this is what the stories were written for originally – broadcast.
