The Mikado Jewel, by Fergus Hume (1859 - 1932).


A widow has been murdered in the home of a relative on a foggy night in London town when all residents were off on to the theatre, and one to run an errand involving the title bauble. Who done it? Old dark house mystery full of period cliches is pulp fun for the new year. ( Matt Pierard)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/56243
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin Genres for the project: Crime & Mystery Fiction/Detective Fiction

    Keywords that describe the book: London, theater, murder mystery, plucky heroine, jewel theft

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

12 -14 uploaded.

I listened to that file you noted -- it's cars or a jet going past my house, can't be easily edited out. Also probably keeps me off Audible, going by a recent thread in the forum.
