eh. wss ok. story. some of the narrators better than others


(3 stars)

Ok mystery I got through it. Adam Adams,is not one of my favorite characters. I found it ok readers did good job as a group, some chapters are a little harder to get through. Thanks to all readers

It was a good who done it. One reader would be better.

(3.5 stars)

Annoying hero, okay story

(3 stars)

As the summary indicates, the famous detective Adam Adams is called in to investigate the double murder of the Langmores. Margaret, the daughter of Mr. Langmore, stands accused, and Adams starts his snooping. As he digs deeper, however, it would seem that something more than just family troubles are at the heart of the murders. My personal observation is that the author wrote the detective as being kind of dense. He walks into some obvious traps and gets himself caught too many times. A couple of the chapters are rough with echoes and buzzing, but the reading is mostly fine, I just found the hero of the story rather annoying.

Good listen

(3 stars)

Chapeter 20-21 sound quality not good. Chapter 23 torture...not good read ability. heard .the news is read in certain countries that way. Poor

Enjoyable listening

(5 stars)

Audio quality on Ch8 is not great for some reason, but the actual readings are all good. I, for one, enjoyed it.

A good mystery

(3 stars)

Sound quality Ch 20 and 21 not good and fortunately others were good, the accent didn't help any.

Such fun!

(4.5 stars)

With the exception of one reader, this story really rolled along clearly. Ins and outs and some great lines.
