Unless this audio version is set in the 30s, in Chicago during the height of Prohibition, Mr. Beaumaris (we assume) is apparently not the fashionable man of the beau monde we have always considered him. That coat is enormous. And Arabella? She’s, like, forty here, right? So, they took the original story and made it a) a gangster story and b) about love with a younger man ? Interesting! D

(Incidentally: yellow again!)
