The Secret House

Gelesen von Don W. Jenkins

(4,317 Sterne; 52 Bewertungen)

A stranger and foreigner arrives at the offices of a small publication in London only to be faced by the “editor” whose face is completely swathed in a veil. Nothing is as it seems, and it quickly becomes evident that both are bent on more than lively gossip about the elite. Blackmail and opportunism is the order of the day. When two men are found shot to death outside the door of Mr. Farrington the millionaire who just happens to live a few doors from T. B. Smith, the head of the secret police, the connections to blackmail are not long in coming. Were these men shot by the blackmailer? Who is actually what he seems to be? (Summary by Don W. Jenkins)

I enjoyed the story but didn't find myself thinking about it between episodes. Perhaps a few too many characters? But even so, there was plenty of suspense and enough surprises to keep one's interest. As usual Don Jenkins's reading was exemplary, and brought the characters vividly to life, although American accents for such essentially British characters never sound quite right.

Cleverly Written!

This is the 3rd Edgar Wallace book I've enjoyed, and my only complaint is,,,,it wasn't long enough! Lots of characters, twists & the bad guys get Wacked! I love a good guy getting the upper hand. just in the nick of time!

A great mystery
