A Gothic mystery unfolds when a spinster arrives at the mansion she's rented for the summer. Plans for a restful vacation are soon interrupted by niece and nephew, ghosts and spirits, murder and mayhem. The complicated plots can make them tough to follow in audio format. The fairly simple story line here is a plus. The mystery is enjoyable for its historical setting, and it doesn't come across as dated. Reading with obvious pleasure, the narrator adds dramatic effect. One can hear the affection in the voices of the elderly mistress and housekeeper, who have an ongoing feud although they're inseparable. Those with a taste for a mystery that's tame but fun will enjoy this recording. B.M.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 94]
