Summary

Excellent murder mystery. On September 9, 1905, the NY Times Saturday Review of Books described this book as follows: “That painstakingly ingenious person, Fergus Hume, has devised another of his hide-and-seek, jack-o’-lantern murder mysteries. It begins with a queer and rich old woman found stabbed to death in her chair and not a clue to the murderer. Then so many clues turn up that even the story-book detective is bewildered. Then nearly everybody turns out to be somebody else under an alias, and all the clues lead nowhere…”

Reviews

Jane Bowtell

- The Secret Passage

It certainly had a lot of excitement about it but there are a great deal of improbable happenings and a lot crammed into the last two chapters which spoiled it a bit for me. Some of the readers made it difficult to concentrate, especially chapters 20-23, please make sure you can read clearly and in fluent English before you attempt to read these books.

- SECRET PASSAGE

The constant changing of narrating voices has me abandoning this book in the middle. It's hard to follow when the voice constantly changes.

Bernie

- The Secret Passage

A clever story but the quality of several of the readers leaves a lot to be desired and detracts from the story severely.

Andy

- the secret passage

Good story though a little disturbed by the anti-Semetism Also the readers insistence on calling the character Basil using the American version of the herb I found grating, have they never seen Fawlty Towers?

- The Secret Passage

Great story, characters, and twists. Beware of the different voices for different chapters....especially chapter 17 voice. It took away from the flow of the story.
