In 1471 Roger leaves his monastic life to become a chapman, or peddler of wares, and at once becomes involved in solving the disappearance of Clement Weaver, son of a wealthy tradesman. With a voice well suited for portraying the various classes of English society, Ric Jerram deftly defines each character through tone of voice, personality, and unique inflection. Slight differences in vocal tones and style of delivery allow Jerram to portray the role of male or female, aristocrat or worker. Jerram portrays Roger's youthful sense of adventure and joie de vivre, along with his naïveté. This is an insightful portrayal of medieval England complete with a compelling mystery. P.A.J.
