Historical Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Gabra Zackman transports listeners to Italy amid the chaos of WWII. Massimo, a young teen scarred by both physical and emotional trauma, is taken under the wing of the enigmatic Pietro Houdini. Together, they find refuge in the Abbey of Montecassino, where they plan an audacious art heist with the help of a growing band of misfits. Zackman masterfully brings the protagonists to life, creating a selection of credible and likable characters. In particular, Zackman's delivery highlights both Pietro's distinctiveness and Massimo's evolving nature as the story unfolds. Her confident pronunciation of Italian and German names, coupled with her impeccable timing, creates a thoroughly captivating listen.
