    After his adventures in Cosi Fan Tutti, Aurelio Zen finds himself back in Rome, sneezing in a damp wine cellar and being given another unorthodox assignment - to release the jailed scion of an important wine-growing family.

    ...because it didn't take me long to listen to the whole thing! I really like Dibdin's writing style and the ironic distance he uses with such subtlety. We readers are allowed to know more than the protagonist even when he is at his confident best. I also enjoyed the reader for the dry humour of his interpretation and for the way he handled the many different voices. While it was clear that this was written in English, for an English audience, Dibdin manages to set the scene very convincingly in Italy. Certain parts made me laugh out loud. Very enjoyable listen!
