Reviews

Lots of good twists and turns


(5 stars)

The summary gives the general idea of the story. When you think the story is going in one direction, it changes up on you, which I like. I enjoy a story that keeps me guessing. Tom W is an excellent reader, thanks for continuing to read Le Queux stories, he's a great author.

Thrilling mystery


(5 stars)

This is a terrific mystery from an author entirely new to me. It's full of suspense and memorable characters. And through all the twists and threats to his person our hero Owen plugs doggedly on. Thanks again to Tom Weiss for another fine reading.

Enjoyable listen


(4.5 stars)

On the whole an enjoyable and convoluted mystery. It's to be expected that the gender relations of the period (as portrayed by the author at least), are somewhat cringe inducing at times, but that didn't spoil my fun.

A thrilling story


(5 stars)

A Great book that grips one to the end! Excellent reader!

A good tale.


(4 stars)

An involved and intricately worded mystery in the style of the time. Worthy of a television drama. Well read a - you get used to the American accent for.an English tale. It doesn’t matter for the mystery. Again descriptions of London and Paris etc are fun to read.

Fantastic!


(5 stars)

Another amazing story from the mind of LeQueux as read by the wonderful voice of Tom Weiss.

Hushed Up!


(5 stars)

Really good book! Loved the clear and distinct voice of the reader!

Librivox please match reader to book


(0 stars)

Far be it for me to criticize. However I feel a story should be matched with a reader whose voice is be suited for the book or story. I have heard Tom Weiss elsewhere and he is very good. But this book needs a female reader, preferably who is British and hence the accent. At the very least, I feel a collaborative of male and female readers(by chapter or audio clip number)whatever their national origin,is the best alternative,and in the main, is preferable to solo for a whole book. Very rare is the reader who excels at reading the entire book. But of course we know who they are at Librivox, names need not be mentioned...sigh
