Publisher's Summary

A beautiful girl seeks the help of an attorney when her father vanishes. Soon, her aunt also disappears from a locked house in the dead of the night. The search leads to the infamous White Cat, a nightclub frequented by crooked politicians and now, murder. The Window at the White Cat is another in the famous "Had-I-But-Known School" of mysteries founded by Mary Roberts Rinehart with the publication in 1908 of her first work, The Circular Staircase. The focus of these stories is the Gothic heroine, always in the wrong place at the wrong time trusting the wrong people.

Good story, bad narration

The story held my interest but the narration sounded like a computer voice.

bad narrator

This is a classic tale of missing people, government corruption and a beautiful damsel in distress (of a sort). Unfortunately, I have to agree with the first review of this book. The story is a classic but the narrator is terrible. She sounds like a computer and her high pitched voice was a poor choice for a first person narrative with a male protagonist. The narrator's voice has almost no inflection, perhaps contributing to the impression that this was read by a computer. All of these issues increased the time it took me to become engrossed in the story. I'd suggest people try the other recording of this book now available on Audible but the sample of that also sounds a bit like a computer with many of the same issues. However, the other narrator is male if nothing else.

It is a wonderful story though and the fact that we could enjoy it in spite of the narration is probably an excellent indicator of just how great a tale it is.
