Cad Metti, The Female Detective Strategist, by George Munro

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/cad-metti-the-female-detective-strategist-by-george-munro/

At a time when the detective story was gaining in opularity, the hero was almost always male. In this story, Dudie Dunne is assisted by his Italian friend, Cad Metti. Dressed as a boy, she slips by unnoticed. A natural, she can pass in high society or the, New York slums. She is perfect for the job of tracking down a gang of Italian-Americans. The Old Sleuth was a quarterly detective magazine published from 1895 til 1905. (Summary by Lynne T)

Hello! I would like to record, if possible, this entire book, as I require seven service hours in a very short span of time- I may have procrastinated... a bit. I'd like to be credited as August Telar- no URL. Tell me if there's anything else you need!

Hi and welcome to Librivox!
There are a few things to do before you get started.
You will need to complete a one minute test - this is to check your specs are up to Librivox standards, and if not, you'll be given hints on how to remedy that. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
Please post your test in the Listeners Wanted forum (see the dropdown at the bottom of the page) for the speediest response. Waiting for the OK may seem tedious, but can save time in the long run. I will just assign one section for now, but once that has been submitted, you will be free to claim any sections that are still open. Your section will be held for 1 month pending your test. Please keep in touch if there is a problem.
You will also need to be added to the catalog of readers. If you click on your name in the Magic Window, you will be taken to your catalog page.Be sure to read the first post - all the info you need is there, but if anything doesn't make sense, just ask. The wiki (see the top of the page) has bundles of info too.

Please be aware that we are unable to verify volunteer hours. We don’t know how many hours readers actually put in to their recordings 8-)

I haven't started recording yet but the chapters I've read so far makes me think this is a book that deserves to be made.

Can I add 4, 5 and 6 (so far) to my To Do list?
