Selected Uncle Abner Mysteries


Read by Winston Tharp

(4.6 stars; 32 reviews)

Fourteen mysteries from the pages of the Saturday Evening Post, the Metropolitan, Red Book, and Pictorial Review magazines featuring Uncle Abner, who solves crimes in the pre-Civil War West Virginia hill country. His weapons are keen observation, logic, and a fundamentalist’s belief in the victory of good over evil. Post’s historical mysteries have been favorably compared to those of his fellow American Edgar Alan Poe. - Summary by Winston Tharp (6 hr 27 min)

Reviews

Hurrah! A good Virginia Writer of Mystery


(4 stars)

Excellent reader, great style with neat story lines. Nice descriptions of 19th century eastern West Virginia scenery and personalities also draw a reader right into the action and towering personality of Uncle Abner. Post does a neat job, so enjoy.

EXTREMELY WELL DONE


(5 stars)

A unique group of stories presented in a most unusual format. It is seldom that we hear Christian values and the universal law presented in tandem. From them ourr modern lawmakers and politicians could learn much about what made our country great.

Thoughtful and complex plots. excellent reader added .
