Footsteps in the Dark

Title: Footsteps in the Dark
Author: Georgette Heyer
Narrated by: Maureen O'Brien
Publisher: Sound Library - BBC Audiobooks America
Length: 8 hrs 18 min on 7 Discs
Copyright: 1932, 1990

Synopsis (from Audio Editions):

Here in this charming but ancient priory mansion, five people learn that they share the summer with a ghost – and another presence, which may turn out to be even deadlier. Things that go bump in the night take on a sinister air when they learn that a murder is committed. First published in 1932.

My thoughts:

The last time I read Georgette Heyer I said I might enjoy it more if it were audio.  And I did.  This was the only one of her mysteries that my library has on audio, but I'm going to request they purchase more because I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I think I "read" it faster listening than I have done when reading vintage mysteries, too. 

There was great humor, I found myself giving a laugh here and there throughout (good thing I mostly listened when alone).  I did guess the main bad guy, but not for any particular reason and that was more to the end.
I was charmed.


  1. Hubby has read a book by Georgette Heyer, but I haven't. I'd really love to give it a try.

  2. I think I'll stick to her audio, but I'd like to read more of her books. Did your hubby like it?


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
