Mystery & Suspense • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

After Gillian discovers an ancient secret in the snowbound German mountains, she sends a message to her former boyfriend, Nick, and then disappears. Nick reads the message, sees Gillian attacked via Web cam, hears a bloodcurdling scream, and the chase across Europe begins. Francis Greenslade’s flawless timing and chilling delivery animate this thriller, which crosses two time lines that are five centuries apart. With a subtle British accent, Greenslade captures the world of the mysterious medieval printer and his fascination with gold, printing, and forgery. These lead to the Book of Secrets and, ultimately, to Gillian’s disappearance. In the present, Greenslade perfectly renders the rising tension as Nick’s investigation leads to his flat mate’s murder. The only clue is an enigmatic medieval playing card. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
