Reviews


(1 stars)

I was only able to enjoy one story. Recording was rather tinny in some. Bass was pretty strong in others. Some readers mumbled and slurred which made it hard for me to understand. Some stories just did not engage my attention.

I love Sax Rhomer


(5 stars)

I love any good mystery story and sax Rohmer is one of my favorites but there are plenty of other good stories in here as well
