Anna Katharine Green (November 11, 1846 – April 11, 1935) was an American poet and novelist. She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories (no doubt assisted by her lawyer father). (9 hr 36 min)

Reviews

What a story

(5 stars)

Due to the reviews I played the 1st minute or so of several chapters to be sure I could understand them. I then listened to the entire book in July of 2016 & had no problems understanding any of the readers. There were 2-3 chapters where I could hear a buzzing sound but it sounded like low level background noise. The readings were much louder so it wasn't very noticeable. One was chapter 1. If you're really concerned listen to it for a few minutes to see that you can understand the reading. I really enjoyed this mystery. There were some great twists & turns that kept me interested & guessing. Was it suicide or murder? Was she shot or stabbed? These are pretty huge questions to have & they're just the beginning! There's a love story here also but it's not overly mushy or anything. It's just a great story overall that you should listen to.

The Reader

(2.5 stars)

The readers rarely affect my enjoyment of a story to the extent that one reader in this story did. Her speech was painfully slow and her character voices made the narrator sound like a complete twit. I realize this is done by volunteers and hate to be so critical but this truly put me off listening to a story I was initially quite interested in. I even tried to come back to it. Couldn't do it. I will gladly read this one for myself.

ouch

(1 stars)

Really wanted to give this book a chance. KG had a bad habbit of adding words just to add them. unfortunately, I can tell by some of the readers, this point is true. i hope this is read by a solo reader who can smooth out those wasteful words.

This book deserves better...

(3 stars)

The storyline is interesting, done from multiple perspectives, and we get to hear more about the famous AKG character, Inspector Gryce, but it is hard to get into due to the recording issues.

(3.5 stars)

love the author, but so long a story that because of the many changes of reader I seemed to lose the flow of the story. Thank you, though, so much to all the volunteers!!

(3 stars)

Not her best work but enjoyable. Liked the reading (miss some of the readers - wish they were still here). If you like AKG this will give you a scope of her writing.

interesting

(4 stars)

After enjoying several of her shorter works ,I found this to be controlled by the writer.However, I would recommend giving it a listen. Thanks to each of the readers.

VENGEANCE COMES

(5 stars)

A good portrait of a man with literally no feelings. The ending was alright, but not as satisfying as it could have been.
