Mystery & Suspense • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Several themes that run through Archer's latest novel are reminiscent of the stories of Alexander Dumas, and there’s no better person to narrate this 21st-century adventure than Roger Allam. He takes you through a murder, the trial, prison life, escape, revenge, and redemption. These events are all set in motion when Danny Cartwright is framed by four friends from Cambridge University for the murder of his best friend, who is also his fiancée's brother. Like Edmond Dantès, in THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO, Cartwright is mentored by a fellow prisoner and, also like the Count, his retribution is well planned and fitting. Allam narrates the multiple layers and numerous characters of this complex plot with alacrity. His reading, together with the story’s ending, will leave listeners fulfilled.
