The Charing Cross Mystery


Read by Kirsten Wever

(4.3 stars; 48 reviews)

Here's another intriguing mystery by J. S. Fletcher, centering on why a former high-level police official was murdered, and on whether - and if so how - the murder was linked to two glamorous and high-profile sisters, one of whose photo was found in the dead man's pocket. As usual, Fletcher creates a number of different detectives -- a lawyer, his assistant, several policemen, a police spy, and even the dead man's granddaughter -- following various lines of inquiry. These lines converge rapidly in the last few chapters, when the author lets the reader weave them together into a coherent whole: the solution to the mystery. Summary by Kirsten Wever (9 hr 2 min)

Reviews

well worth listening to


(5 stars)

This is a classic J.S. Fletcher mystery. Lots of diversions as the various actors try to work out the larger plot and solve at the same time the several crimes committed along the way. The reader is to be commended for her pace, tone and pronunciation- excellent work which complemented the text.
