Publisher's Summary

Orson Welles, host and narrator of Black Museum, welcomed listeners to Scotland Yard's "warehouse of homicide", containing everyday objects that either brought a killer to justice or were used to do a killer's dirty work. In each episode, Welles strolls through the "repository of death", selects one object, and tells its story.

Take another tour of the Black Museum.

    Story
    "Orson Welles was made for radio! What a voice!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This was a radio program probably from the 30's or 40's. It was a great story and I enjoyed it very much. I would recommend it to others who like a good short program. 30 minutes.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I expected the ending, so it wasn't a surprise. Very satisfying.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was perfect. I love listening to Orson Welles.


    Do you think Black Museum needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I hope that there are other programs like it out there. It has a great premise. Take an object from Scotland Yard's Black Museum and tell it's story. The item in this episode was a Chain. Excellent


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Audible will get additional episodes of this radio program to enjoy. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "LOVE IT ❤️"

    A Great little spooky introduced by the deep voiced Orson Welles who adds a little bit of humour to these supposed real life stories from the archives of the Scotland Yard Black Museum London. I have 12 of these quirky stories and all of them are unique and quite enjoyable in their old fashioned way. Wish we there were more.
