The House by the Lock
What secrets lay within the walls of the house by the lock? What secrets, if any, are held by the man who owns that mysterious house?
A body is found in a backwater creek not far from the house by the lock, but what leads Noel Stanton on a quest to determine who the killer might be is more than merely the disappearance of his American friend Harvey Farnham. He has reason to believe that the wealthy and influential owner of the house, Carson Wildred, might somehow be implicated in the coincidental disappearance and murder. But as Stanton's search progresses, he learns that his friend is safe and sound back in the U.S. and he therefore must learn more about the house itself with its peculiar construction, it's hidden passageways, and the peculiar smoke occasionally seen rising from its inaccessible areas. But everything is accounted for by the police, the servants, and Mr. Wildred during his investigation, leaving a most strange mystery left for Stanton to unravel. (Introduction by Roger Melin)

the house by the lock
Story runs around the subject a lot but generally a good read. Of course the reader is excellent.
what an adventure
how I missed this book, I have no idea. I may have confused it with another. I did enjoy listening to it. I just had to know how evil finally gets it in the end. Poor Mr. Farnum.
Great Mystery, Sweet Love Story
The hero of our story, is as tenacious as a Terrier with a tennis ball! The villain, is a nasty fellow, with money, and, an insatiable desire for more! Great characters, fast paced adventure, & all for Love...What more can you ask for, I wonder?
good bedtime listening and well read. If the plot is a little disappointing towards the end it is still worthy or a read.
Good mystery, I liked it.
Roger Melin is an excellent reader. The story gets a bit tedious here and there, but over all is a great story and kept me listening. Enjoy!
