The Notting Hill Mystery

(4,5 Sterne)

Similar in style to a Wilkie Collins but doesn't quite reach the same heights. Still I did enjoy it and would recommend listening if you enjoy a mystery even if a little predictable. The reader was faultless and I will be looking for other readings they have done.

I liked the format & enjoyed the story even though it can be figured out.

In literature, a Baron is seldom trustworthy. This one seems not to have been. An interesting presentation, but one that must be used sparingly. The premise of death in the manner described seems highly improbable, but the assertion of vicarious eating while under a mesmeric trance is folly. Well read.

Kevin Green reads this beautifully!

A most enjoyable reading; Kevin gives the characters their individual voices and accents to bring to life an unusual "detective" story. Thank you Kevin!
