Listeners travel with Veronica Speedwell and her professional partner, Stoker, to an island off Cornwall with Stoker's older brother, Lord Templeton-Vane. There they become intrigued by the mystery of a bride who disappeared after her wedding three years earlier. Narrator Angele Masters plays up the sexual and familial tension among the three as Stoker and his brother compete for Veronica's attention, continuing their lifelong sibling rivalry. Further, Masters adds spice to the audiobook with her portraits of the superstitious residents of the island and the eerie events of a seance aimed at reaching the missing bride. Throughout the audiobook, Masters effectively plays down the anachronisms in the story, making the listening experience all the more enjoyable.
