Gelesen von MaryAnn

(4,612 Sterne; 196 Bewertungen)

Shirley Claiborne is fascinated by the tall handsome man named John Armitage who seemed to follow her and her brother, Captain Claiborne, as they traveled around Europe. Count von Stroebel had urged Armitage to do something for Austria. Now von Stroebel was dead – cut down by an assassin’s bullet – and Jules Chauvenet is one step closer to seeing the corrupt and worthless Francis ascend to the throne. When Shirley and Captain Claiborne sail for their home in Washington D.C., Armitage follows them. Monsieur Chauvenet also follows, but is he following Shirley or the mysterious John Armitage? And just who is John Armitage? (Introduction by MaryAnn) (7 hr 50 min)

Wonderfully, Artfully Written & Read

(5 Sterne)

This was a thriller, from beginning to end. Laugh out loud wit & even some tears, were surprisingly, evoked from me through this book. The Woman's voice was seductive, playful & perfectly suited to the story. My only disappointment was that I reached the end.

Great mystery

(5 Sterne)

This one did catch me off guard, I didn't see the ending coming. The summary covers the plot nicely. The story surrounds the mysterious John Armitage. Who is he, and how is he related to the goings-on in Austria? The reader did an excellent job, and the recordings are excellent. This was a very enjoyable story.

Intrigue of a high order

(4 Sterne)

Well-written, well narrated. Usually, international intrigue is not my preference for reading/listening. However, this was so well narrated, I became hooked into the characters as well as the plot fairly early on. Definitely worth a listen regardless of the genres you may prefer.


(4,5 Sterne)

I am very fond of this reader despite her few errors such as row and row...just enough change in voice to register reality... enough characters and plot to maintain interest and a little romance...intrigue and bravery seal the fate of this tale, for me


(4 Sterne)

With a rather farfetched plot and protagonists who seemed to have emerged from a fairy tale, I am still giving this 4 stars because of Mary Anne, the volunteer reader.

Fun book

(4 Sterne)

Fun book to listen to, but quite a few (easy) words were mispronounced which was quite distracting at times. I still enjoyed it and appreciated the otherwise excellent reading.

good book

(3 Sterne)

The book is pretty good, and the reader is expressive and enthusiastic, although she mispronounces a lot of words. If you overlook this, you'll probably enjoy.

thrilling adventure, sweet love story

(5 Sterne)

interesting plot that held up well and a happy love story entwined, that was reasonable and plausible in the wider tale.
