A Kessinger
Publishers Weekly, October 2011

Wallace’s classic crime novel…is given a distinguished reading by narrator Bill Homewood. Homewood’s rich, eloquent narration fits perfectly with Wallace’s tale of post-Victorian intrigue. His dignified delivery of the book’s descriptive passages perfectly captures the era’s drawing rooms and gentlemen’s clubs where stories are shared over brandy and cigars. At the same time, Homewood manages to embody a wide range of characters, giving each its own distinctive voice. Although the story can be melodramatic and over the top, Homewood does such an entertaining job that the listener can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun. Read complete review

Midwest Book Review, October 2011

As with “The Four Just Men”, the plot of “The Council Of Justice” is simply fascinating and engage’s the listener’s rapt attention from beginning to end. Superbly narrated by Bill Homewood who does full and complete justice to Edgar Wallace’s imaginative and suspenseful story, complete and unabridged, technologically flawless in production values, “The Council Of Justice” is enthusiastically recommended for personal and community library audio book collections.
