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.

Audible Editor Reviews

Adventure buffs weaned on the swashbuckler Kidnapped may not even know about its sequel, Catriona! Robert Louis Stevenson continues the story of orphan David Balfour, pitching him into a story packed with political intrigue, forbidden love, and a murder mystery. Stevenson employs the flair for action he brought to such adventure staples as Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde in this gripping yarn. David Case lends a lively, if old-fashioned gravitas to his performance of this classic of young adult literature.

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.
