Reviews

Much Better


(4 stars)

This is much better than the Mystery Girl! I'm glad I didn't pay attention to the one negative review here. It really applies to the Mystery Girl but not this book. It is another locked room mystery with "love" at first sight & a girl in distress that acts queerly. It was enjoyable, logical, & made me incorrectly guess who the killer was.

R. Kilmer is always a joy


(5 stars)

Richard Kilmer is one of my favourite Librivox readers. Such a pleasant and relaxing voice. The book is enjoyable in its own way, neither the best nor the worst, and should keep your interest for the most part. The reader is the star for me though.

Pretty good


(4 stars)

A pretty good tale that kept my interest. The wild variety of clues found in the dead man’s room were quite intriguing and I did not figure them out before the reveal at the end, but they made sense. I enjoyed this volunteer reader very much.

The Chained Door


(5 stars)

I love this period stories! They always start of slow,, yet after the second or 3rd chapter becomes engaging. And of course Fleming Stone. Always a treat & interesting how Carolyn Wells exemplifies the detective's way of thinking. Quite a treat.....

well read, fun mystery


(5 stars)

a fun little mystery that plays well. not many twists and turns and the romance is a little heavy handed but it is still a fun story.

A Chain of Evidence


(4.5 stars)

Reader always a good listen with a unique cadence and tone; story fun and light on the who-done-it plot with a twist of romance. Many thanks!

NICE AND NEAT


(4.5 stars)

Another interesting detective story replete with false clues. Stone solves it satisfactorily, Kilmer reads it nicely, and all (with one exception) live happily ever after.


(5 stars)

the book is so-so, but the narrator is good! think maybe the other reviewer has the wrong recording as this one is excellent.
