The Stretton Street Affair

The Stretton Street Affair by William Le Queux
By: (1864-1927)

Hugh Gabriel has recently been repatriated from the war and has rejoined his old firm as an electrical engineer. On the way to visit his uncle one night, he is asked by a servant if he would be willing to meet with his wealthy master who is in some distress. Hugh becomes witness to, and directly involved with, a dastardly murder. Or has he? Who is this mysterious millionaire Oswald De Gex he has been asked to meet with? Is Doctor Moroni an honest physician or a diabolical monster? And what about the fair Gabrielle - but then, is there more than one Gabrielle? Le Queux, the Master of Mystery once again weaves an intricate plot which takes Hugh Gabriel to locations throughout Europe as he tries to unravel a scheme that he does not understand, nor why he is involved.

Reviews (Rated: 3 Stars - 2 reviews)

Subject: Don't waste your time
The stars in my rating go to the reader in acknowledgement of his effort to record this (the result is unfortunately not that great either). The book would be OK if a decent writer took the story and told it. As it happened, the language is just awful. Very poor vocabulary and style. Skip it.

Subject: Interesting mystery
Not the best tale but definitely worth listening to. Very good reader.
