This novel is written by the author of, among other novels, the Stories of Sherlock Holmes. It is narrated by John Fothergill West, who tries to discover why the tenant of Cloomber Hall, General Heatherstone, is nervous to the point of being paranoid. Why are his fears becoming stronger every year at the fifth of October? And why doesn't he let his children leave home? This is a great mystery novel with a sharp twist at the end.
Was a difficult listen. Please please don’t do scottish accents like this. We do NOT sound like that, ever.
Interesting but not very suspenseful story overall. The narrator was very good with various voices for the characters. ( Chapter 8 narration has an accent very difficult to understand, but the chapter doesn't contain any necessary plot points, so can be skipped if needed.) Not my favorite Doyle story but worth a listen.
