Historical Fiction • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Sack relates events of the thirteenth century surrounding the death of St. Francis and the conspiracy to steal and hide his body. A devout monk named Conrad seeks to find the truth behind the crime, a quest that involves him with a myriad of characters who represent the social strata of the period—from merchants to the Pope himself. Narrator Geoffrey Blaisdell reads with passion and vigor, delivering Sack's often complex prose with ease. Blaisdell’s performance has a certain sense of theatrics. His narration is strong and commanding, and listeners will be captivated by his smooth delivery. A truly remarkable story and an equally remarkable performance.
