What to expect

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Hunt by Oscar De Muriel, a Christmas tale from the world of Frey & McGray, read by Andy Secombe.

Christmas, 1888. After a thoroughly trying time in Edinburgh, Inspector Ian Frey looks forward to a Christmas break at his family's country estate back in England.

But the welcome respite of home cooking, hunting trips and brandy by the fire is ruined by the arrival of an unwelcome guest . . .
