The Secret Rooms: A True Gothic Mystery | [Catherine Bailey]

The Secret Rooms: A True Gothic Mystery

In April 1940, the ninth Duke of Rutland died in mysterious circumstances in one of the rooms of his family estate, Belvoir Castle. The mystery surrounding these rooms holds the key to a tragic story that is played out on the brutal battlefields of the Western Front and in the exclusive salons of Mayfair and Belgravia in the dying years of la belle époque. Uncovered is a dark and disturbing period in the history of the Rutland family, and one which they were determined to keep hidden for over 60 years. Sixty years on, The Secret Rooms is the true story of family secrets and one man’s determination to keep the past hidden at any cost.

    "Very Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about The Secret Rooms: A True Gothic Mystery?

    Frankly, it was boring. There was no great secret involved and the one secret that interested me was never explained. And there was nothing gothic about it. It's just the story of a dysfunctional aristocratic family told mostly through letters.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something truly gothic, not like this.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None--unless the listener is an avid fan of World War I history.


    Any additional comments?

    I seriously wanted my money back on this one. It was a waste of money and time. I kept waiting for something to happen and it didn't. There was nothing very mysterious about the story and certainly nothing gothic about it.

    "NOT IMPRESSED"

    This was written in such a boring way that it ruined any interest there might have been.
