The summary alone was so very intriguing to me. When listening I was kept in suspense all the way through. While I thought I knew who was behind the conspiracy, & was right, there was no way to figure out why. There's also a murder. Are both related or not? Is the main character really a good honest man or does he deserve the treatment he's been receiving? I rarely find books to rate over 4 stars. This deserves them all. As usual, Robert's reading is perfect. I hope he ends up reading the majority of Librivox books.

Thank You Roger

(5 Sterne)

I'd like to thank the reader (Roger Melin) for this book. It kept me company on a 2 day journey in the car. Roger is an excellent reader and the story keeps you engaged. I didn't get sleepy while listening. 5 Stars for a good book and a great reader.

I have listened to this book 2x

(5 Sterne)

And enjoyed it both times. The summary covers the plot of the story. I listen to books at work, and sometimes I get caught up in a book so much that I put it on my kindle and head home and finish the book. This was just such a story. Roger M is one of my favorite readers. Thanks again for a great story!

Refreshingly old school mystery

(5 Sterne)

I love this reader he imbues a feeling of authenticity to whichever story he reads. This mystery is NewYork city around 1918 I'd guess as it was published first in 1919. When a detective had to use his own intuition and tireless investigation to get to the bottom of it all!

thoroughly entertaining

(4 Sterne)

The story was a fun read also it was rather predictable. The reader was excellent. I love listening to the story as it captured my attention while I was doing various tasks throughout the day. I would highly recommend listening to the story . I will look for other stories by these authors.

A well read plot

(5 Sterne)

A talented reader. Thank you. The traps and methods of escape are creative and merit study by the students of crime— think of the ingenious organization of the criminal group. I will say no more- “The game is afoot “. A good read-

(2 Sterne)

the author would've done better to keep his story shorter than to drag out and retell some parts of this story. the reader has good pacing yet some of the voicings he uses were not quite right but, I hope he's done other narratives to compare...
