The Port of Missing Men

The Port of Missing Men by Meredith Nicholson
By: (1866-1947)

Shirley Claiborne is fascinated by the tall handsome man named John Armitage who seemed to follow her and her brother, Captain Claiborne, as they traveled around Europe. Count von Stroebel had urged Armitage to do something for Austria. Now von Stroebel was dead – cut down by an assassin’s bullet – and Jules Chauvenet is one step closer to seeing the corrupt and worthless Francis ascend to the throne. When Shirley and Captain Claiborne sail for their home in Washington D.C., Armitage follows them. Monsieur Chauvenet also follows, but is he following Shirley or the mysterious John Armitage? And just who is John Armitage? (Introduction by MaryAnn)

So loose the rein and cheer the steed and let us race away To seek the lands that lie beyond the Borders of To day... Continue reading book >>

Reviews (Rated: 5 Stars - 2 reviews)

Reviewer: - October 26, 2014
Subject: Good story, great reader
Consistent reader throughout made this a joy to listen to. Marianne does a great job, and she gets five stars, at least as far as I'm concerned. The story itself is a fun adventure. Not terribly memorable or amazing, but a good, entertaining story, although a little predictable in some parts.

Subject: Amazingly well read!
Any book read by Marianne would be worth listening to.
