Reviews

Good Mystery


(4 stars)

I agree this is a good story. There are many twists and turns to keep you wondering. I am giving this four stars, because there are other stories I have like better. Also this rating is in part due to the over use (in my opinion) of Sherlock Holmes - more precisely Watson references. The reader earns 5 stars.

Oh bother!


(5 stars)

According to the dedication the authors father was an avid fan of mystery stories. This book is, both a farce of the genre , and a darn good mystery at the same time. The reader was quite good! It was almost a dramatic reading read by one person.


(3 stars)

interesting mystery, the sleuth turning over his ideas through the story, not just at the finale

Well written mystery


(5 stars)

The main character is a wealthy wanderer who likes to try different professions. On one of his sojourns, he is in the right place to witness a murder. Noting the conflicts in the story, he decides to try his hand at sleuthing. He even finds a 'Watson' to help him along. The story takes a number of unexpected twists and keeps the listener guessing as to the outcome. A note regarding the reader; she did a FABULOUS job.

Good plot & well read


(4 stars)

I liked the story told by an outsider and was caught by surprise a few times. The narrator did a good job and it was easy to get a feeling of different characters

Great mystery

I am a professional musician and I learn better with my ears than with my eyes. I am also an Army Combat veteran and have some symptoms of PTSD. I love the musical sound of the reader who read so beautifully this story. The story was good but the voice was great. But I appreciate all of the readers and thank God for all of you. You all are doing a great service and as I listen to the stories they take me away from the sounds and memories that sometimes are so painful. Thank you so much.

Truly Enjoyable


(5 stars)

Great mystery! I couldn't figure out what happened, which I appreciate. I loved the relationship between Gillingham & Beverly. They call each other "ass" a lot which made me giggle. I thought it was cute & liked that they referred to each other as Holmes & Watson. They were so curious they investigated without telling the police or anyone else which always makes me nervous! I wish I could read more stories about them.
