Summary

Madame Midas is a murder mystery, In the early days of Australia, when the gold fever was at its height.Fergus Hume was born in England, the second son of Dr James Hume. At the age of three his father emigrated with his family to Dunedin, New Zealand. He was admitted to the New Zealand bar in 1885. Shortly after graduation he left for Melbourne, Australia where he obtained a post as a barristers’ clerk. He began writing plays, but found it impossible to persuade the managers of the Melbourne theatres to accept or even read them. Hume was a capable writer of mystery stories, and may be looked upon as one of the precursors of the many writers of detective stories whose work was so popular in the twentieth century.

Reviews

Tamela

- Madame Midas

Any story read by Lucy is pure torture. Her voice is so dull it'll make you fall asleep, and her accent also makes it hard to understand what she is saying.

- Madame Midas

I thought the narrator was good in many ways. Her accent and pronunciation of some words caused a little confusion at times, but I found her narration very enjoyable overall. The plot is filled with many unexpected twists and turns and vivid characterizations abound!

Thank goodness for the previous review, saved me much unpleasantness. I wont listen to a single chapter read by Lucy Burgoyne let alone 13 hours worth!
