Rafael Abalos's convoluted tale, set in 1313 France, features the young tramp Grimpow, who is transformed by the discovery of a frozen corpse and a magic stone. The stone launches him on a journey to uncover secrets left behind by the persecuted Knights Templar. Richard McGonagle portrays Grimpow as a chipper, naïve young man who is bewildered by his quest?. His bewilderment is shared by the listener as clues are slowly parsed out using riddles and maps--not easily shared in the audio format. McGonagle's steady narrative flow does not alter whether characters are in the midst of battle on the jousting field, beset by French thugs (with unaccountably Irish accents), or uncovering yet more clues to the invisible road.
