Summary

The second in the highly anticipated new series by Lemony Snicket, the enigmatic author of the best-selling "A Series of Unfortunate Events".

In the fading town of Stain’d-by-the-Sea, young apprentice Lemony Snicket has a new case to solve when he and his chaperone are hired to find a missing girl.Is the girl a runaway? Or was she kidnapped? Was she seen last at the grocery store? Or could she have stopped at the diner? Is it really any of your business? These are all the wrong questions.

Lemony Snicket had an unusual education and a perplexing youth and now endures a despondent adulthood. His previous published works include the thirteen volumes in "A Series of Unfortunate Events", The Composer is Dead, and 13 Words.

Brilliant as ever!

I really loved this audiobook. It was incredible and I found out more secrets hidden in Lemony Snicket's spellbinding words.

Fast-paced, confusing but hilarious

Liam Aiken's deadpan delivery perfectly suits the writing style. An excellent read turned into excellent listening.
