Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

An expert narration by Sean Barrett introduces Dr. John Dee, astrological advisor to Elizabeth I. On a pilgrimage in the Welsh countryside to acquire a scrying stone (crystal ball), he's accompanied by his friend, Lord Robert Dudley, advisor and rumored suitor of the Queen, who is fleeing court after the curious death of his wife. Barrett's sonorous voice captures the historical figures with vivid portraits in a multilayered story that mixes factual detail with mystery and supernatural elements. Dee and his entourage encounter witchcraft, murder, corruption, and surprising trueheartedness. Barrett's ability to engage and hold listeners' attention and his diverse characterizations make this outstanding listening. M.N.T © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2014]
