Read by Roger Melin

(4.2 stars; 121 reviews)

The Ravenspurs have for generations resided quietly in prosperity and comfort at their seaside castle. But the clan is suddenly besieged with strange happenings which are dwindling the population of the family to only a few which remain, and those few find themselves in fear of becoming the very last of the powerful family if the cause of their untimely deaths and disappearances is not uncovered soon. It will take a great deal of detective work and a touch of travel to help unravel the mystery of the Ravenspurs. (Roger Melin) (11 hr 59 min)

Reviews

one of my favorite readers


(3 stars)

looooong story or it took so much time to get to the point. culprit was pretty obvious but still it was a good listen.

worth listening to


(4 stars)

This story builds in sections to an unexpected conclusion. chapters can stand alone as individual short tales. A story that makes good reading/listening.

interesting and twisty


(4 stars)

Lots of twists in this interesting plot. Well narrated by Roger Melin, his usual. 👍

JUST RIGHT


(5 stars)

Roger does his usual great job of narrating, but, despite what some comments implied, he did not save the book. It is a well-done novel of suspense, skillfully woven to a classic finish. Two things for those who complained about it's length (which really was not very long): 1 Products of our current generation want instant gratification, not quality; 2 They probably consider "THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO" to be too long.

Nicely read, but dull story


(0.5 stars)

The tale starts out with promise, but then simply drags on & on & on pointlessly. Couldn’t endure to the end. The monotony killed any interest in whatever may have been the outcome.

A long book


(2 stars)

If you read 3/4 of a book where someone was caught in the house trying to kill the lot and the police are not called, would you continue it? Not me.

Too melodramatic


(3 stars)

Roger is an exceptional reader but even he couldn't help me to hold my interest. I skipped to the last two chapters and am glad to have done this.


(4 stars)

A very good story. Somewhat melodramatic, but still enjoyable. What I find interesting is that at the end they didn't assume the antagonist was insane, as was usual at the time.
