The Clue of the Twisted Candle by Edgar Wallace (1875 - 1932).
Detective mystery story set in London, with some romance, and intriguing plot. ( Peter Thomlinson)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2688
  • 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!

We already have a (group) version of this in the catalog. Just in case you don't want to do a re-run. :)
Cheers,
Ava.

Yes, I saw there was, but thought it might be good to have another version. I've recorded most of it already.
