Professional reviews

"Smart, plucky Anne Beddingfeld sees a man die strangely in a London tube station and decides to investigate the mystery herself. When the case points toward South Africa, the orphaned Anne uses her life savings to buy a ticket on an African-bound liner and heads off toward much adventure and intrigue in this delightful 1924 novel. Emilia Fox infuses Anne's voice with a level-headed bravery and uses a mix of British accents and intonations to inform listeners of the social class and personalities of the rest of the large class. An excellent job, marred only by her tendency to make all men speak in a husky whisper. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
