    The recovery of the magnificent gem in Lord Attenbury's dazzling heirloom launched a shell-shocked young aristocrat on his career as a detective in 1921. Thirty years later, a happily married Lord Peter has just shared the secrets of that mystery with his wife, the detective novelist Harriet Vane. Suddenly, the new Lord Attenbury—grandson of Lord Peter’s first client—seeks his help to prove who owns the emeralds.

    Overall

    Although I really liked this story, I found the narrator very difficult to understand. Between his accent and tendency to swallow the last part of every sentence, I had a difficult time getting through the book. In addition, the narrator modulated his voice in such a way that if I could hear the beginning of the sentence, I couldn't hear the end! His voice finishes most sentences softly.

    After narrowly surviving his last operation, Gabriel Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, has taken refuge behind the walls of the Vatican, where he is restoring one of Caravaggio's greatest masterpieces. But early one morning he is summoned to St. Peter's Basilica by Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to his Holiness Pope Paul VII. The body of a beautiful woman lies broken beneath Michelangelo's magnificent dome.

    What disappointed you about The Fallen Angel?

    The story was formulaic. It was a little tedious to listen to because it was predictable.
