Reviews

Listen to this one

(5 stars)

I truly enjoyed this book. Glad I read the reviews before I listened to the book. I paid attention and didn't just casually listen. Consequently, the twists and turns made sense. The narrator is very talented. His voices all work well except for the "irritating hillbilly" voice used on a few characters. I listened in 2 sittings as I didn't want to put it down.

I LOVE this story!

(5 stars)

A good old mystery with comedic parts/lines is my favorite kind of story. This is that with a small touch of romance thrown in. There are multiple mysteries to figure out but they aren't too numerous nor too difficult to follow. There are a bunch of names to keep track of & for a moment I did forget who was who a couple of times. This is typical of me though. I just kept listening & the story reminded me. Although politics are involved this subject isn't gone into at depth. You discover there are politicians that have taken money and there are papers to prove this. Many go to a club to hang out which is where part of the title comes from. That's the extent of the politics, thankfully! Murder, thievery, revenge, & romance are the main focus. Even if the reader wasn't excellent I would've loved this story. Yes, the hillbilly voice was hard to take but at least he gave different voices to each character which helped me to keep better track of them. The reader made an already addictive story even better.

So many twists and turns it makes you dizzy

(4 stars)

This story was good, many twists and will keep you guessing. At times I thought it was a bit too convoluted but it was good, the story overall, was maybe a 4. The reader however, is vastly entertaining if not for his wonderful narration I probably would have given up on this one half way through. Wonderful Job!

Great Mystery

(5 stars)

I do so love a Flawed Hero...a Mysterious Lady love, and numerous characters throwing kinks in the best laid plans...Mary Roberts Rinehart, was indeed an Author with a delightful array of stories to tell.

(4.5 stars)

loved it

(5 stars)

I was hooked quickly by this story because of it's intricate plot and animated reading. 5 stars. well done.

intriguing title

(5 stars)

Another excellent mystery by the Ms. Rinehart! I found the ending to be totally unexpected. The author does an excellent job of creating so many potential suspects, and most of the time it is a total surprise to me! Much of my enjoyment of mysteries, is trying to figure out Whodunnit!! ( please excuse the technical difficulty writing this review. having editing issues.) I think it is harder to figure out ahead of time, or even think you know who it is, with the books by this author then it is with Agatha Christie books. I have enjoyed reading both authors for several years. for me, I have a more difficult time knowing who to suspect even, with this author! Robert Keiper did a superb job with his narration.

An Entertaining (and educational) Read

(4 stars)

I enjoyed this book immensely. One of the wealthy elderly characters is definitely a racist and that is something to be aware of while listening to the story. I think it was supposed to be humor, but it's very cringy. I think it is an excellent opportunity to be educated on how non-white people were viewed (and treated as "less valuable") by society in this time period. It's not a flattering portrait of white America but, I think, a necessary reality check for us all.
