Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

A murderer stalks New Amsterdam in 1633, kidnapping and murdering orphans of the town and the African settlement nearby. Blandine von Couvering, a colonial trader and an orphan herself, teams up with spymaster Edward Drummond, recently arrived from England in search of regicides of Charles I. George Guidall reads this spine-tingling story of deception with softly inflected tones. Historical figures such as Petrus Stuyvesant and Martin Henderikson play small roles interspersed with those of Orphanmaster Aet Visser and numerous mixed-race Indians and Africans. Guidall’s quiet voice draws the listener into a story of long ago, when Europeans are settling the New World and fighting natives for control of the land. Guidall’s voice shifts and flows around the increasingly tense race across the wilderness of Connecticut and up the rivers of New Amsterdam to stop the murderer and bring evil men to justice.
