The Pit Prop Syndicate by Freeman Wills Crofts (1879 - 1957).

Potential DPL's outside the USA: Freeman Crofts died in 1957. His work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years.

Quote:
Seymour Merriman stops at the side of the road 26 miles outside Bordeaux, an action that will change his life forever. The events that follow lead him into mystery, smuggling, murder and love. Two amateur detectives try to unravel the mystery of changing number plates, and everything else that surrounds the pit prop syndicate, before the case is handed over to Inspector Willis of Scotland Yard. (KHand)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2013
  • 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!

Kicking this off with Section 1 being ready for PL!

As a note, The book is divided into 2 sections (Part 1 The Amateurs and Part 2 The Professionals). I have mentioned the "Part 1" heading with chapter 1, and will mention the "Part 2" with chapter 12, but I think it's redundant to include them with each chapter.

I agree, once is enough.
