Clues, secret passages and mysterious packages rear their inconvenient heads. It’s making the job of hoodwinking the authorities more and more difficult. Mary Roberts Rinehart - today on The Classic Tales Podcast.
Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.
The Classic Tales Podcast is listener supported. I’ve gone through and created many more options to support the podcast, so if you can swing more on the monthly side, or want to give us a single donation, you can find an abundance of options at www.classictalesaudiobooks.com. Each donation comes with a monthly “thank-you” code.
Seriously, thank you so much for your support. With the changes that I’ve made, and the uptick in donations, we are making headway. We still have a long way to go, but things are getting better. Thank you so very much.
One of the challenges of these “golden age” mysteries is that it can be pretty difficult to distinguish between the characters. In listening to several audiobook versions of classic mystery novels, this is the thing that really becomes more and more evident. I hope today’s meeting with Detective Jamieson works for you.
I’d also like to shine a bright spotlight on the racism in this story, too. When I record audiobooks, my main emphasis is always to do my best to get the author’s message through in the recording. But with the scripting of Thomas, I’ve tried to make him more dignified than the author probably intended.
And now, The Circular Staircase, Part 2of9, by Mary Roberts Rinehart.
