A thrilling mystery told from multiple points of view makes this classic a compelling story for the audiobook format. The story centers on the sudden disappearance of a large diamond that causes upset in a British aristocratic family. The author pieces the facts together through the points of view of various characters from diverse backgrounds. Narrator Matthew Lloyd Davies masterfully transitions between them, creating a unique voice for each. From the sincere and provincial servant Gabriel Betteredge to the prim and prudish Drusilla Clack, Davies transforms his voice convincingly to capture each speaker. He depicts the earnest young hero, Franklin Blake, in a confident, deep tone. Davies's characterizations faithfully mirror the voices that emerge from Collins's story, and his attentive narration does not disappoint.
