    When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. When more children disappear and an orphan is found dead with the same mark, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the German history, and the insights into the methods and expertise of hangmen during the 17th century. The narration was engaging and well performed. Though the story was a bit long-winded at times, and lacked momentum towards the end.

    Barcelona, 1945: Just after the war, a great world city lies in shadow, nursing its wounds, and a boy named Daniel awakes on his 11th birthday to find that he can no longer remember his mother's face. To console his only child, Daniel's widowed father, an antiquarian book dealer, initiates him into the secret of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a library tended by Barcelona's guild of rare-book dealers as a repository for books forgotten by the world, waiting for someone who will care about them again.

    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I was taken back to 1945, Barcelona. The narrator has a beautiful spanish accent and captured each character with detail and authenticity. Never once did he falter in communicating the emotional words of Zafon's characters. This book was a treasure.
