Reviews

another goodie


(5 stars)

I honestly can listen to anything read by peter tomlinson. such a soothing and unique voice. truly enjoyable for myself and my daughter. we are repeat listeners of all his recordings haha


(4 stars)

The reader's lisp was a little distracting at first but it is also admirable that he did not allow it to prevent him from reading. His voice is comfortable and easy on the ear. Otherwise this is is another entertaining and suspenseful tale by Edgar Wallace. His style is a little slow in places by contemporary standards but my wife and I enjoyed the author's digressions and discursions and his thoughtful insights. The story certainly holds one's interest and keeps the reader or hearer guessing. We also enjoyed his occasional humour at his own expense. Listening to it certainly made our drive from Adelaide to Melbourne appear much shorter than it was.

Very well read


(3.5 stars)

Wallace is never my particular favourite, being somewhat outlandish to say the least, but the story is well read and if you enjoy Edgar Wallace generally, you'll certainly enjoy this one.

good book

the reading was perfect in my opinion. I do use the playback speed to adjust voices. that's why I like one reader only


(4 stars)

An intriguing plot keeping me in suspense with a twist at the end


(5 stars)

Arch villain, romance, mystery, and surprises make this a very entertaining story.

(0.5 stars)

the story sound interesting, however, the reader slides in and out of slurring, I'm afraid it can't be listened too
