This sequel to R.L. Stevenson's KIDNAPPED takes David Balfour further into intrigue and danger as he seeks to solve the Appin murder and absolve himself and his friend, Alan Breck. Frederick Davidson delivers the text of this nineteenth-century novel with a thoroughly convincing variety of Scottish brogues and English accents. The convoluted syntax and florid literary style of the time, as well as numerous unfamiliar Scottish terms, can make the story difficult for the ear to follow. The authenticity of the reading intensifies these elements, but the stout-hearted listener can find enjoyment in the challenge while experiencing a Romance novel by this beloved adventure author.
