Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

When a suspected Nazi war criminal seeks sanctuary in Larkwood Priory, his case stirs up controversy and sparks an investigation by Father Anselm, a former barrister, into the events surrounding the roundup of Jewish children and the people who helped them escape occupied Paris. It also stirs up painful memories for Agnes Embleton, a prison survivor. William Brodrick weaves a fascinating story by centering his mystery on the characters' motivations without resorting to cliff-hangers. Graeme Malcolm reads the story gracefully, maintaining Brodrick's emphasis on the human equation as he shapes the characters. This first novel satisfies as both a mystery and a thoughtful reflection on a tragic period in history. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
