    Against a teeming canvas of Borgia politics, Niccolò Machiavelli and Leonardo da Vinci come together to unmask an enigmatic serial killer, as we learn the secret history behind one of the most controversial works in the western canon, The Prince. Traveling across an Italy torn apart by war, they will enter a labyrinth of ancient superstition and erotic obsession to discover at its center a new face of evil - and a truth that will shake the foundations of western civilization.

    Story

    I really like the premise of the story and so wanted to listen to this book. However, I quit after five chapters. Carlotta Montanari's Italian accent was so distracting that I simply could not follow the book. Accent's are great for character dialogue, but not narration. Why the Publisher/Ennis chose this method of narration is beyond me. Be sure and listen to the sample before you purchase. I should have. I wish I could get my money/credit back on this one.

    In Blood of the Reich, critically acclaimed and best-selling author William Dietrich weaves two stories separated by place and time yet deeply intertwined by the dangerous secret they share.... On the eve of World War II, explorer Kurt Raeder receives orders from Reichsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler to set out from Berlin in search of a legendary energy source hidden among the mountains of Tibet - one that could bring victory to the Nazis.

    "Worst narration ever"
    Overall

    I am a fan of William Dietrich. This review is not directed at the book but at the quality of the narration. At one point Robert Fass' attempt at a German accent sounded like Kermit the Frog. Horrible. I couldn't take it anymore and stopped listening.
