The House by the Lock

The House by the Lock by Alice Muriel Williamson
By: (1869-1933)

What secrets lay within the walls of the house by the lock? What secrets, if any, are held by the man who owns that mysterious house?

A body is found in a backwater creek not far from the house by the lock, but what leads Noel Stanton on a quest to determine who the killer might be is more than merely the disappearance of his American friend Harvey Farnham. He has reason to believe that the wealthy and influential owner of the house, Carson Wildred, might somehow be implicated in the coincidental disappearance and murder. But as Stanton’s search progresses, he learns that his friend is safe and sound back in the U.S. and he therefore must learn more about the house itself with its peculiar construction, it’s hidden passageways, and the peculiar smoke occasionally seen rising from its inaccessible areas. But everything is accounted for by the police, the servants, and Mr. Wildred during his investigation, leaving a most strange mystery left for Stanton to unravel. (Introduction by Roger Melin)

Reviews (Rated: 5 Stars - 3 reviews)

Reviewer: - November 16, 2015
Subject: The House by the Lock
A good story with a couple of clever twists. Very well narrated (as always) by Roger Melin.

Subject: Exciting
This was a really fun story. A little typical in some ways, but entertaining nonetheless. It was narrated by one of my favorite readers, who also did The Valley of the Giants (possibly my favorite find on this site). As with that story, he does a great job narrating here, too.
