Reviews

Thank you Sharon Kilmer!


(5 stars)

Your work is very much appreciated! I've listened to libravox for 10 years now, and you are one of the best!

a good mystery


(4 stars)

Entertaining story. Reader does an okay job, but mispronounces lots of words. The most egregious of her mispronunciations is “statue” of limitations. I cringed every time she said it.

Not Worth the Time


(2 stars)

Nicely read but a rather poor novel. We hear the same statements over and over again. Also too many childish "are too, am not" sorts of arguments. The protagonist is honest to a fault and rather trying. The basic story was somewhat interesting but the execution was terrible. This was the first Hume I've read - I'm going to read Murder in a Hansom Cab next. If that isn't any better that will be the last Fergus Hume story for me.

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW


(5 stars)

A very clever plot and fairly well read. As one reviewer noted, there is some repetitious action and the arguments could have been a bit more mature. The ending was satisfying, but Hume missed one great opportunity: he could have arranged for Mallien to marry Rupert's housekeeper! Ha!

interesting story
