The terrible secret hidden in Porthgenna Tower all but ruins the life of Sarah Leeson, a young servant, and comes back to haunt Rosamond, the heiress of the mansion, fifteen years later. Vivid and eccentric characters such as Arthur Treverton, the irascible hermit, Schrowl, his bullying servant, and Uncle Joseph, a kindly bumbler, add to the dimensions of this detective thriller. AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE ONLY.
What an enjoyable experience — to have a book as well written as “The Dead Secret” read as well as this recording by Flo Gibson. Gibson has absolutely outdone herself as she brings to life all the wonderful characters in the story written by a friend of Dickens.
