An unbearable compulsion to glance quickly over a shoulder in the dark corridors to the stage would sometimes reveal a figure in evening clothes moving softly in the shadows—a figure no one could name. Nothing is done, however, until the disappearance of the young singer Christine Daaé during her triumphant performance. With an increasing pattern of fear and violence, the Phantom of the Opera begins to strike, but always with a beautiful young performer at the center of his deadly desires.
Self-contained, this app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
This audiobook was professionally recorded at the Blackstone Audio studios by professional narrator Ralph Cosham.
