The Mystery of the Hidden Room

Gelesen von Roger Melin

(4,5 Sterne; 109 Bewertungen)

A classic mystery/detective story in the Sherlock Holmes tradition, the hidden room suggested by the title of this book does not remain a mystery for very long as the book progresses. Written in the first person, the husband of his (Carlton Davies) former lover is found dead one night at the stroke of midnight, and Davies finds his ex-lover standing over the dead body immediately after the shot was fired, with a gun in her hand. It was no secret that she never truly loved her husband, who had blackmailed her into marrying him. The jury ships Ruth to prison, and the stage is set for Davies to locate the right detective for the case, and for a series of events with twists and turns and surprises that will keep the reader guessing who was responsible for this murder.

Masterfully Crafted Mystery!

(5 Sterne)

Humorous & creative, this novel is not to be taken lightly! It is a wildly entertaining tale, combining action, adventures, romance, suspense, several dastardly deeds, committed by a diabolical, murdering fiend, and two genuinely likable Heros. *One must listen without any nonsensical "PC" sensitivity, allowing for the era, in which it was written. The recording itself, by Roger Melin, was, much like listening to a friend tell you a story, by firefight. His voice is a rich, deep, expressive baritone, that wraps you with the warmth of the story.

can you figure it out

(5 Sterne)

Excellent presentation,thank you to the reader! Loads of theories,twists and turns.Well worth a listen.

Twists & Turns

(4,5 Sterne)

This one kept me guessing. Reader was outstanding. I highly recommend it to the puzzle solvers out there.

Interesting mystery

(4 Sterne)

First I'd like to say the narrator is great. Secondly the story is very interesting. A fun listen. Even if the outcome is not extremely plausible. Still a lot of fun.

(0,5 Sterne)

Is there lots of gruesome/graphic parts in this book ( descriptions, lots of bodies or blood etc) and are there any sexual/ inappropriate scenes???

mystery of the Hidden Room

(5 Sterne)

Very good with a lot of twists and turns. I read lots of mysteries but I never did figure out this one until the end. Roger Melin is still an excellent reader and he makes the book very interesting with his voice presentations.

Good story

(4,5 Sterne)

it is a good story but in the 30's the reader loses his expression. overall a very good story

Another American Rival of Sherlock!

(4 Sterne)

Well this American detective is more a fan than a rival. The story is a good one and well-paced but shares with the Holmes canon some gothic features and one or two unlikely moments. All good fun and if you know the reader then you know that he is always excellent
