THE DANTE CHAMBER The Dante Club, Book 2

by | Read by Steve West

Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Listeners unfamiliar with Pearl's earlier work, THE DANTE CLUB, will easily follow his second installment, set four years later in London, 1870. Narrator Steve West's measured cadence and deft characterizations infuse British literary luminaries Christina Rossetti, Alfred Tennyson, and Robert Browning with depth and emotion as they race to find a missing Dante Gabriel Rossetti amid sinister events. Deaths predicated on Dante Alighieri's vision of Purgatory pique famed Scotland Yard Inspector Adolphus "Dolly" Williamson's interest as he also tracks Fenian Brotherhood operatives. A reluctant Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes also joins the fray, along with a familiar antagonist. West's assured tone guides escalating events and intensifying emotions, though the narrative slows at times in the second half. An afterword provides insight into the era and characters.
