Reviews

Great Work


(5 stars)

Once again, Carolin, your excellent reading has given me several hours of enjoyment. You (and all of you at Librivox) deserve more credit than my simple words can tell. The story was very entertaining and I always enjoy a story with a happy ending. If I ever needed an attorney and I could find one like Brett, I would just tell him my problem and take a long vacation. The telling of a very serious crime was done in as tasteful a manner as I can imagine. God Bless you Carolin, and all who so unselfishly give freely of themselves for the enjoyment of others.

A nice book and a great read by Carolin. I have seen some negative reviews from other LibriVox listeners on Carolin’s reading but I find those totally incorrect. And I am surprised that such readers have so much time and determination on their hands to write their own deep criticizing opinions of a volunteer reader on free to the listener audio book service! If a reader doesn’t care for a particular reader on LibriVox then why not just simply and quietly move on to another book?

a different kind of jewel robbery


(5 stars)

Engaging and fast paced. Wonderfully read. Will be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys a good jewels and political intrigue.

More an adventure


(2 stars)

Starts as a mystery, but a fifth of the way turns into an adventure—and a boring one at that. The reader does an excellent job with the material she has to work with.

BRETT STRIKES AGAIN


(5 stars)

I wonder if it is only accidental that the finest portrayer of Sherlock Holmes is named (Jeremy) Brett. No matter, this is s good story, well written and well read.

one of my favorite readers


(3 stars)

audio had a bit of a tunnel sound in the first few chapters but it did go away. action, danger, but not much mystery.

Great mystery and excellent reader.


(5 stars)

A pleasure to listen to this story that takes place in Europe over 100 years ago.

Karoline was a wonderful, expressive, reader. I enjoyed this book so much, can't wait to read another Tracy book.
