Praise for The Listening House

“What a find! I’m so happy to have discovered Mabel Seeley. You will love her feisty heroine and the delightful cast of characters who live in the mysterious Listening House. I changed my mind a dozen times about who I thought the killer was, but I was wrong every time!”—Victoria Thompson, USA Today bestselling author of Murder on Wall Street

“Like her tenacious heroine, Seeley’s writing showcases intelligence and a razor-sharp wit. This exceptional reissue is certain to win Seeley a whole new generation of fans.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The Listening House is a corking good mystery abuzz with bon mots, snappy comebacks and sexual tension, calling to mind the best screwball comedies of the 1930s. With her novels, Seeley introduced early examples of self-reliant female sleuths, and Gwynne is a paragon: she more than matches wits with the men working the case.”—Shelf Awareness

“Miss Seeley is to be welcomed as a very promising author of detective fiction.”—Times Literary Supplement
 
“Miss Seeley, with a good story to tell, ingenious plot and counter-plot, character diverse and clearly seen, lifts her book into the first class.”—Observer
 
“Blood-curdling . . . especially good.”—Saturday Review of Literature

“The Crime Club have discovered a genius in Mabel Seeley. The author’s style is unusual: she tells her story in natural everyday language, but she puts it ‘right over’—and what a climax!”—Manchester Evening News

“So packed with weird thrills that it grips from first page to last . . . should take its place as one of the best thrillers of the season.”—National Newsagent
