The Spider


Read by Don W. Jenkins

(4.2 stars; 33 reviews)

Arthur Vernon, member of the Athenian club and member of “society,” has a secret. His father has died and left him destitute, so he has begun a private investigation agency under the name “Nemo.” It would be disastrous if this were known among his associates at the club, and especially if his intended in-laws found out. But he is quite sure no one else knows, that is until his old college classmate, Constantine Maunders, visits him with a proposition he can’t refuse. Maunders knows all, and he wants to be made a partner in the agency, providing “Nemo” with black-mail worthy information on other people in society in return for a share of the financial rewards for their silence. Vernon is appalled, particularly as “Nemo” is engaged in solving a high profile blackmail case. These are the beginning of Vernons conundrums as the clues unfold. - Summary by Don W. Jenkins (10 hr 7 min)

one of my favorite authors and usually I can tolerate Mr. Jenkins, but this time he's used voice that hurt my ears. I would recommend a different microphone or no voices. I do like his regular voice.

(3 stars)

Pleasantly absorbing mystery and still love DWJ’s narrations. Recommended.
