That Affair at Portstead Manor by Gladys Edson Locke (1887 - 0).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/that-affair-at-portstead-manor-by-gladys-edson-locke/

An English country home during a house party becomes the scene of a double mystery. One of the three detectives employed on the case is a woman whose common sense, calm, and plain logic are skillfully employed in straightening the tangle. A double love story as well as a double crime seems not too much for the writer to handle. - Excerpted from the NY Times Book Review, Aug 16, 2014.
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/thataffairatpor00lockgoog
  • 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!

1-2 PL OK

The volume on chapter 2 is a tad low (86.2) but within specs and only 1.2dB from chapter 1. Already an interesting book.
