Publisher's Summary

Caleb Williams is a young, naive, and bookish man from a humble family. He is hired as a private secretary and librarian by a local country squire Ferdinando Falkland. Falkland seems to be the best of men - a cultivated, humane, liberal and kindly man. But when honest young Caleb Williams comes to work as a secretary for Squire Falkland, he soon begins to suspect that his new master is hiding a secret. 

As he digs deeper into Falkland’s past and finally unearths the horrible truth, the results of his curiosity prove calamitous when - even though Caleb has loyally sworn never to disclose what he has discovered - the squire enacts a cruel revenge.

A tale of gripping suspense and psychological power, William Godwin’s novel creates a searing depiction of the intolerable persecution meted out to a good man in pursuit of justice and equality. 

Written to expose the political oppression and corrupt hierarchies its author saw in the world around him, Caleb Williams makes a radical call to end the tyrannical misuses of power.

Great narration and a great story

Performed really well by Gresta Mason though I found the placement of the prefaces strange.
