Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1993

Here we have a canny mystery from Spain, ingenious, literate and possessed of masterful characterization. A rare manuscript of a THREE MUSKETEERS chapter leads a swashbuckling antiquarian on a sleuthing expedition involving murder, sexy women and satanism. Bibliophiles will enjoy the authentic details of the rare book trade. Lovers of good writing and suspense will find plenty of other attributes. British actor David Warner performs in a laid-back style--or rather, in a singularly worldly style, as befits this urbane volume. This is not to say that he lacks passion. The timbre of his voice is itself exciting, and he's always in sync with the mood, atmosphere, action and characters. What on the printed page would be delicious light reading becomes on cassette a tour de force. B.S. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
