The Forsaken Inn


Read by Richard Kilmer

(4.3 stars; 154 reviews)

Told from the perspective of a Mrs. Truax, the owner of an inn during the time of the American and French Revolutions, "The Forsaken Inn" is a locked-room mystery that keeps readers guessing about what has happened. A young couple stays at the inn for the night, and goes on their way in the morning ... and several years later, the bride's body is found in a secret room of the inn. Yet, many people saw that bride leave with her husband. How can this be? Green tells her tale through Mrs. Truax' diary, and through letters and discussions with other characters who were friends of the young couple. An entertaining and highly recommended read.

(5 stars)

i liked the plot. although u know most of what is going to happen, there are some twists that u r not expecting. But, and I hate to say this because I know how hard the volunteers work and the time they give. the Narrator would be good in a different genre. he was so monotone that it was difficult to stay interested. ( sorry)

A very good story. I enjoyed the narration of Richard Kilmer one of LibriVox very good readers. Very good story with some interesting twists. Another one of AKG's fine mysteries. Good listen

This, I'm sure, is a great book, but it is VERY hard to listen to the reader. Each time he ends a sentence, he goes up in pitch like he's asking a question.

A Good Book with Excellent Narration

(4.5 stars)

This is my second Anna Katherine Green book and I enjoyed it immensely. It is more of a drama than a mystery but held my interest through the end. It surprises me when folks find Mr. Kilmer's voice somewhat difficult to listen to. He is one of my favorite narrators with his soothing voice and no dramatic voices. I think if one listens to Richard Kilmer's narration for a while it will grow on them in a very positive way. Thank you LibriVox and Mr. Kilmer for the enjoyment I received from this book.

(4 stars)

I actually enjoyed the story. it was refreshingly different than the normal mystery but semi hard to follow because of the stories inside the story. everything is told in the first person but there are like 4 different people talking and it's a little confusing

The Forsaken Inn

(5 stars)

Good read. Another deliciously long intrigue with human emotions laid bare the good and the evil, intertwined with romance , acute frustrations fogged plot that keeps you on edge to another unusual and bitter sweet ending. Enjoyed very much, thanks!

(5 stars)

I really enjoyed this story. I’m familiar with Richard Kilmer’s reading style & he was excellent in this recording, IMHO. He’s a real pro. I listen for writing style, too. AK Green is one of those little known treasures. Thanks, LibriVox!

Spooky!

(5 stars)

I liked this gothic style murder story a lot. The mystery is all about the atmosphere of suspence and the shocking deads, rather than guessing who done it. (No one had to guess if Uncle Silas is evil or not.)
