"Martin Hewitt is a genial Sherlock Holmes, a brilliant private detective who uses logic, minute observation, and then imagination and common sense to solve an odd assortment of perplexing crimes in nineteenth century England. His clients tend to be nervous types who overreact to crises, thus allowing Hewitt to be the calming, soothing presence. Even without sound effects this presentation is excellent as Covell narrates in a superb dramatic style, with multiple vocal characterizations. This collection of notably read stories will be enjoyable fare for many public library patrons."from the American Library Association BOOKLIST February 15, 1982

"American author Jacques Futrelle's example of an early 20th century detective story, first published in 1907 in THE THINKING MACHINE, is skillfully narrated by Walter Covell who unobtrusively and smoothly assumes the roles of all the characters, telling the story quite masterfully and suspensefully." review of "The Problem of Cell 13" from PREVIEWS magazine October, 1980

"Intelligent, daring, but oh what a rogue. Nothing is safe from Arsene Lupin, the intriguing, intrepid thief. Only his good friend Inspector Ganimard has managed to arrest him,but only briefly. Even Sherlock Holmes, who arrives to sort out a complicated burglary is embarassed by Lupin's much publicized wiles. Good plots, great narration (a super job by Covell) and the wonderfull Lupin create an excellent few hours of short stories."review of ARSENE LUPIN, GENTLEMAN BURGLAR in the American Library Associaton BOOKLIST March 15, 1984

For a whole bunch of reasons. For one thing, given the high price of most companies' book rentals, it doesn't cost all that much more and you don't have to worry about getting them back on time. When you're done you can lend them to friends, colleagues, relatives,the boss, etc. or donate them to tax-deductible organizations such as schools, libraries and hospitals. You make friends, influence people and get yourself a nice little deduction. A warning - most of our titles are worth a second or third listen. Lend them only to friends or relatives who are in the habit of returning things. LinkExchange
