On the evening before his marriage, Sinclair loses a precious curiosity from his collection: an amethyst box, containing a tiny flask of deadly poison. He suspects that this poison is in the possession of either his betrothed or her cousin, the girl his best friend Worthington loves. Turning to Worthington for help, they try to recover the box before the poison can be administered...



Nice plot. I enjoyed the reading very much! Thank you Carolyn!


I had trouble with the reader at first, but gradually I understood her accent better..interesting story!


- Intriguing!

The reader did a fantastic job. She has a beautiful accent easy to understand and great expression! The story is an intriguing and tangled mystery which all comes together toward the end. A love story or two is also included. Great listening experience.


- Awful Reader

I couldn't get past 5 minutes with this book. The reader is terrible, I couldn't understand her. It's like she had a thick accent and read extremely slow.


- The Best!

Wow! The reader is ok, and yet The Amethyst Box is the best Anna wrote!


Good, very interesting, well written short story. We'll read by Carolyn


- Great short story!

An enjoyable story, especially if you want something short but fast-paced and interesting. Took a couple of chapters to get used to the reader and her style, but once I got accustomed to it, I was able to kick back and relax for the rest of the story.
