"Every crossing is a theft of a life." How mysterious. How beckoning. This audiobook combines the suspense of nineteenth-century horror with the cool detachment of narrators Barrie Kreinik and Raphael Corkhill. Using their finely honed talents for European, African, and American accents, the narrators link an obscure short story by poet Charles Baudelaire with the Nazi occupation of Paris, the slave trade in New Orleans, and a long-forgotten South Sea island. A chase across time that begins with the breaking of tribal taboos can end only with sacrifice and longing. This audiobook is presented in two complete chapter versions told in alternate order, a format that makes it appear twice as long as it actually is.
