Reviews

A million stars for the reader.


(2.5 stars)

First few stories were too flabby to continue. Came back later, skipped ahead a few chapters to find the book fails to springs back to life.

A really good short mystery


(4 stars)

A good short "Old School" mystery novel, read by an excellent reader. Thank you for your work and sharing your talent.

An absorbing tale


(4 stars)

A complex tale with many twists and turns. Up to the usual standard of these two writers.


(3 stars)

Nothing wrong with the story, just a lot of coincidences ; worth listening to for the time it takes


(5 stars)

A nice simple, but enjoyable plot. The reader made it easy to follow using different voices and intonations.
