Publisher's Summary

I should have asked the question "How could someone who was missing be in two places at once?" Instead, I asked the wrong question - four wrong questions, more or less. This is the account of the second.

In the fading town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea, young apprentice Lemony Snicket has a new case to solve when he and his chaperone are hired to find a missing girl. Is the girl a runaway? Or was she kidnapped? Was she seen last at the grocery store? Or could she have stopped at the diner? Is it really any of your business? These are All the Wrong Questions.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Great

Loved it liked the voices but not enough unique voices for all characters but what can you do with one person but I am glad that it wasn't as monotone as I thought it was at the beginning anyway good for any first audible book and definitely a recommend

An excellent mystery

I have been pleasantly surprised by this series. The author has a quirky writing style, but I find I enjoy it.
I also like how he just doesn't "hand it" to you. You have to concentrate on small details. For example, a hat in book 1 may be significant in book 2. At the time you note the hat, but did you note the significance of the hat. I love these scattered "Easter eggs" throughout the book.
I also adore the characters. They are becoming well liked friends. I feel the town itself is a "main" character in this book and that "she" has many more secrets to tell.
Let us move on to the next.

great!

easy to digest, a mystery, funny, excellent writing, the voice actor was ok, some things he's not as good at portraying what I feel the author meant to invoke with his words

A wonderful prequel to "Unfortunate Events"

A delicious kids' mystery in a quasi-noir style (with adult winks along the way, such as librarian "Dashiell Qwerty").

cute

it's a cute little story but very short and I doubt anyone who didn't read his series of unfortunate events would enjoy it quite as much.
