The Green Rust (Version 2)


Read by Kirsten Wever

(4.7 stars; 43 reviews)

Edgar Wallace, perhaps best known for creating King Kong, wrote dozens of novels. The Green Rust, his twelfth crime novel, is one of three books he published in 1919. It begins at the English home of the severely ill American millionaire, John Millinborn. With him are his best friend, Kitson, and a local doctor, the Dutch (or is he?) van Heerden. He is murdered in the first chapter, having just left his fortune to his niece, Oliva, whom he has never met. Before he dies, he asks Kitson to find and watch over Oliva.

Reviews

fantastic story!


(5 stars)

this is a great mystery / Adventure / story! I have come to enjoy the narrator she does have a bit of a monotone-ish cadence but once you get used to it it disappears and she is very good!

EAT YOUR HEART OUT IAN FLEMING!


(5 stars)

Global take over planned. Control over the world's wheat markets. Biological warfare. All to restore German wealth after the Treaty of Versailles. A story of revenge. 1920s. Romance woven throughout.

Good story and good reader


(4 stars)

The story takes place in post WWI London, England, so for the most part, people from Germany are the bad guys. Thank you for putting on Librivox.

i gave up on version one, the narrator for that was all wrong.

(5 stars)

Love this story. I hardly ever listen more than once but this one I have. Kinda cheesy, a bit melodramatic, but still very good.
