Free Audiobook:The Lodger by Marie Belloc Lowndes

The Lodger by Marie Belloc Lowndes

Posted by Erik Nilsson, May 2017

Author: Marie Belloc Lowndes   Narrator: Peter Newcombe Joyce   Language: English    Category: Mysteries & Thrillers


Inspired by the Ripper murders of 25 years before, Belloc Lowndes wrote this story in 1913, a gripping claustrophobic tale describing the impact on an impecunious ageing couple, the Buntings, when an eccentric stranger comes to stay as lodger. Mr Sleuth is a good guest, pays handsomely and in advance, needs very little looking after and seems to be a harmless gentleman. But when the murderous exploits of a serial killer known only as ‘The Avenger’ start occurring closer to home, Mrs Bunting begins to worry about her guest, his curious experiments and nocturnal habits. The tension is held throughout and the real identity of the culprit is not fully exposed until the close of an excellent psychological thriller packed with horror and suspense.

Audible user reviews

Audible’s users are totally in love with the service!

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
