Publisher's Summary

In the sequel to Kidnapped, David Balfour's story continues as he becomes further caught up in the political conspiracy of the "Appin Case." He must defend himself and James Stewart of the Appin murder; not an easy task because the Campbells want James Stewart to hang.

The "Tale of Tod Lapraik," a crucial part of the novel about a diabolical obsession, is considered one of Stevenson's greatest Scottish tales. The book also introduces two of Stevenson's most memorable female characters: the Highland heroine, Catriona, and her friend (sometimes rival), Barbara Grant.

Exciting Story by the Best Reader

This exciting sequel picks up immediately where "Kidnapped" left off, continuing the adventure of David Balfour and his good friend Alan Breck Stewart. In this novel, however, the author combines a story of cliffhanger romance with his trademark style of high adventure. As for the reader, David Case (aka Frederick Davidson), he is, as always, the best man for the job. Not only are his dramatization and voice differentiation unparalleled, but he is a master of the Scottish, English and French accents with which the story abounds.

CatriOna

The O in Catriona is supposed to be silent. Otherwise this is a good reading of a great story.

Readers different names.

There is another Catrriona audible book read Francis Davidson. I did not buy that as I think Davidson is a very poor, old fashioned reader. I therefore was pleased when this book read by David Case was advertised , albeit at twice the price.However , on buying the book I realised that Davidson and case are the same actor. audible very good at giving me back my credir but other buyers need to beware. What I listened to was awful - quite the worst scottish accent I have ever heard.

Dire

Like listening to a 1940's recording with one of the worst Scottish accent attempts I've heard. I tried to listen a number of times but have given up. Some of the accent attempts make it almost unintelligible.
Very dissappointed
