Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

In David Liss's third Benjamin Weaver novel, the seemingly effortless artistry of Audiofile Golden Voice Simon Vance brings listeners an eighteenth-century London replete with stuffy manners, superficial mores, and Machiavellian plotting. Charming, sometimes ingenuous, always engaging, Weaver is duped into owing a large sum of money, a situation that forces him to steal documents to erase his debt. Vance's nuanced performance makes Weaver an appealing hero who confronts the social problems of the day—from gambling establishments to political intrigue, from business hanky-panky to anti-Semitic attitudes. Liss offers nefarious villains, sumptuous temptations, a homosexual bawdy house, and several wild chase sequences. Vance develops noteworthy secondary characters, precise period diction, and Weaver's witty, droll observations. All combine to make this suspenseful adventure a winning audio experience.
