The three great-nephews of cantankerous Mr Penicuik know better than to ignore his summons, especially when it concerns the bestowal of his fortune. His freakish plan is that his fortune will be his step-daughter's dowry.

I really like all the unabridged Georgette Heyer books. I am very disappointed though that you audible are only bringing out abridged versions. Please bring out the unabridged versions as well!!!

John Buchan is a great author! Thanks Audible for a great several hours. The reader Peter Joyce did a superb job. Please keep more Buchan books coming and have Peter Joyce read them! The adventures of Dickson McCunn for example. Thanks

Secret agent Richard Hannay travels across war-torn Europe in search of a German plot and an Islamic messiah. He is joined by three others: John S. Blenkiron, an American who is determined to battle the Kaiser; Peter Pienaar, an old Boer Scout; and the colorful Sandy Arbuthnot, who is modeled on Lawrence of Arabia. Their success or failure could change the outcome of the First World War.

John Buchan is one of my favorite authors. This recording was well read and very engrossing. I would very much like to see some of his other titles offered. Huntingtower would make a great soud recording as would John MacNab. Thank you Audible for your great service.

Penniless Elinor is rather surprised at the carriage that meets her from the stage, and more so at the decayed grandeur of the house to which she's transported. Realising that there has been a case of mistaken identity she agrees to an audacious plan.

Thank You Audible for having recorded so many Georgette Heyer books. I have read all of them but I really look forward to listening to them. I hope you can keep on recording other books of hers to audio.Cornelius Garrett does a great job reading these books as do the other readers. I especially like him reading A Quiet Gentlemen. I look forward to seeing in audio format of Sylvester, Frederica, The Grand Sophy, and Simon the Cold Heart. Thank you again Audible for the great service you render.
