Reviews

(4.5 stars)

An enjoyable whodunit even though I figured out who did it, which I normally don't. I didn't find the storyline to be out there. Excellent reader. All volunteers should be required to sound similar.

well read story

(4 stars)

A good mystery,excellent job by MaryAnn well worth a listen. Thanks enjoy!

well read, but hokey mystery

(3 stars)

this reader always does a fantastic job. easy to listen to. but the story is so hokey, not realistic as another review said. within the first few scenes i figured out who did it and all the twists and turns the writer attempted only confirmed my belief, right down to who the people were and in what relation. such a let down, because the reader was so good i was hoping for an engrossing story. more like a childrens "who dunit". if you are new to mystery novels read this one, if you have read a million of them - like me - then you may want to skip it if you hate figuring out the ending in only the first chapter or two.

Classic Murder Mystery

(5 stars)

The old fat detective glued to his easy chair. The young new detective on a bizarre case of gruesome murder, where no one is what they seem. At the end, a honeymoon and an inheritance, with only one handsome cab case inbetween. The narrator made this an easy listen. Thank you.

Good Story

(5 stars)

An interesting murder mystery that holds one’s attention. The narrator is one of my favorites with her beautiful voice tone and exceptional delivery. The only criticism I have is the mispronunciation of the word “gaol” which is an archaic spelling of “jail”. Gaol is pronounced jāl exactly like jail.

Great Read!

(5 stars)

MaryAnn reads so beautifully (except for puting on a deep voice which she does not need to). One can readily tell charachters just by her clear enunciation and attention to the grammer. An interesting detective "who dunnit" although it was not difficult to decide the perpetrator.

(5 stars)

good murder mystery! not an intriguing, lovable detective character like Sherlock Holmes but the details of the case itself lend plenty of interest to the story. And MaryAnn is a good reader. thank you librivox!

good mystery

(4 stars)

Complicated plot. Decent reader. Took me several minutes to figure out what was meant by “gall” until it struck me that the author is English and they spell jail as gaol.
