First of all, I'm okay with Flo Gibson narration, almost having an affection for it, but she's not for everyone.
That aside, I found the story largely dated, feeling it likely appealed to a Victorian audience more than it would to a modern one. Not a very suspenseful plot, with the ending pretty much what I'd expected earlier on. Reminded me a bit of Poe's "The Telltale Heart" almost as though Trollope had gotten his idea after reading that book.
