(4.5 stars; 109 reviews)

Giles Dudley is called upon by his cousin Henry Wilton to assist him in San Francisco, but the reason for the summons is not at all clear. Dudley answers the summons, only to find himself immediately wrapped in the middle of mystery and intrigue, the roots and ends of which he is utterly unaware. He has been given to care for a mysterious young boy whom he hasn't even seen. His cousin has mysteriously disappeared. Dudley's role in the mystery has him convinced that as he goes about trying to assist his cousin with whatever it was he wanted to accomplish, he does so completely blindfolded. (Summary by Roger Melin) (10 hr 57 min)

Reviews

unexpected story


(5 stars)

I thought it started out slow and I stopped listening for awhile but I'm glad I came back to it. Some unexpected plot development and a few things I guessed but more that I didn't. Totally worth a listen and many, many thanks to the reader.


(5 stars)

This is a really great adventure. Roger Melin is awesome as a reader. I enjoyed the accurate description of horrible Bay Area weather and the San Francisco setting. I figured out the mystery pretty early on, but I always like to find out that I am right!

very solid novel


(4 stars)

extensive racist attitudes and language about chinese people (and some brief outdated terminology for black people, but no n-word thank god) but some interesting female characters with lots of plot moving power. the novel ends a little blandly

Almost a good story


(3 stars)

This would have been a good story but it was deeply flawed. How could the protagonist possibly think that his employer who he saw almost daily be trying to kill him the rest of the time?

Prosopagnosia suffers conspire in weak plot


(2 stars)

frail plot, augmented by thoroughly uninteresting and somewhat irrelevant sub-plot in trading pit economics.

nice evenings read...


(4 stars)

Classic mystery, no offensive. Well narrated (Roger Melin) and recommended. Another classic for a rainy night's read.

fantastic!


(5 stars)

Somewhat slow to unfold, but a fantastic story! Definitely worth the listen. Excellent reading of the story, too!

long but good


(4 stars)
