The Shrieking Pit


Read by Kevin Green

(4.6 stars; 131 reviews)

The Shrieking Pit is one of Arthur Rees's earlier works, and is a good old fashioned murder mystery story. Grant Colwyn, a private detective, is holidaying in East Anglia when he notices a young man at a nearby table behaving peculiarly. The young man later leaves the hotel without paying his bill, and turns up in a nearby hamlet in the Norfolk marshes where he takes lodgings at the village inn. The next day, another guest at the inn is found dead, and the young man is missing. Can Colwyn sort out the mystery and prove the young man's innocence one way or the the other?

A very enjoyable whodunnit with many red herrings. The narrator Kevin Green gives an excellent well paced rendition which results in a beautifully relaxing audio experience.

Enjoyable with a cuppa and blanket...

Clean, entertaining plot with some twists. Cast of characters is likable and have enough depth to draw a reader in...Enjoyable reading by Kevin Green.

Good one!

(5 stars)

Normally I have trouble following an extremely detailed mystery like this one, but the author does a great job of making everything clear, repeating the points until he drove them home, and keeping the listener/reader in the loop. It is very well narrated, and a riveting story that keeps you guessing until the end. Speaking of the end, that was my only complaint. It ends very abruptly. Everything is spelled out, but it leaves you feeling like the story just comes to a screeching halt. But don’t let that deter you from listening. It is definitely a worthwhile adventure!

enjoyed it

Late coming on the title.

Reader was great. The ending was very sudden and left me with a couple of questions unanswered. But, this was a good story over all.
