Listening to this audiobook takes one back in time to hear the voices of monks, actors, scholars, and scoundrels. The Medieval Murderers write literate and baffling mysteries. THE FIRST MURDER begins in 1154 when a prior writes a biblical mystery play that includes the story of Cain and Abel. This play about fratricide is cursed and leads to murder when it's performed in Ely in 1361, in London in 1606, and in Oxford in 1820. These disparate stories are connected smoothly by the steady, elegant voice of Paul Matthews. Whether it's a guilty young monk or a thieving actor, each character is fully credible. Matthews takes us subtly through each scene and captivates us with a polished performance. D.L.G. [Published: MAY 2013]
