Donada Peters's reading of Newman's historical mystery misses the feel of twelfth-century Europe. This brilliant romantic adventure of a stolen religious relic involves the complex cultural crossroads of Saxons and Normans, Jews and Catholics. The story is richly exotic, full of well-researched but inconspicuous historical details. But Peters's otherwise proficient voice is not up to the task of the nuance and ambiance of the period, and is marred by frequent mispronunciations of Hebrew words.
