Gilbert Greenwood and Reginald Seton are bachelors who share a flat on Great Russell Street. Neither are especially prosperous but through economies, they manage to live well. One of their hobbies is fox hunting. One night, Greenwood, on returning from a fox hunt finds a man and a young girl alongside the road. The girl appears to be exhausted and Gilbert offers assistance to the couple . Greenwood learns the man's name is Burton Blair and the girl is Mabel, his young daughter. After some food and rest, Blair relates to Greenwood that he is in search of a secret which will make him wealthy beyond his dreams and that he and his daughter have been searching for that secret for years. As the story unfolds, Burton Blair has, evidently, found his secret and become wealthy although he will share the secret with no one, not even Mabel. One day, returning from a trip, Blair is found dead on a train. The doctors believe it to be a natural death but Greenwood and Mabel suspect foul play meant to obtain the secret of his wealth. An unknown individual has been named to execute Blair's will but no one knows why. A mysterious code is discovered, one which may truly be undecipherable. Could this code hide the secret to his riches? Is Mabel completely innocent as she appeared? And Greenwood is warned that Seton may also not be reputable. Once again Le Queux weaves a tangled web of intrigue and mystery. (Summary by Tom Weiss) (6 hr 50 min)

Reviews

Another great mystery and love story


(5 stars)

Tom Weiss does such a great job reading that it would be hard not to enjoy the book. Set in the distant past, it is sometimes hard to relate to how the characters think and talk but a great reminder of how far we've come. I didn't figure out the mystery in advance and some characters surprised me at being friend or foe. Good listening and recommended.

Bravo from Borneo


(4.5 stars)

This is my first William Le Queux novel and I am so very delighted to have come across this author. I enjoyed the language employed to tell this murder mystery story and the plot line was very well developed with no real sense of how it would be resolved until the end. Chapeau to the narrator who acquitted himself well. Now, on to the next book by this author!

interesting story


(3 stars)

I'm very grateful to the reader who did a good job in all, the only problem is the dreadful pronunciation of the Italian words, I'm sorry to say he didn't get one right!!

Excellent reading and story


(5 stars)

I enjoyed this book very much. It kept me guessing all the way through and the characters were likeable. Well read by Tom Weiss, as always.

space filler


(2 stars)

The story could be nicely told in less than half the time if all the repetitious fluff and stuffing was left out.

Totally worth the read
