    Story

    Well the Inspector had it worked out long before me if thats possible on audio cd!
    Another fabulous mystery with characters you can see in your head as you listen.
    I felt I could disappear into the book and need not try to imagine the scene or the people, I was just there.
    Excellent narration, difficult I imagine with so many female parts. Great book.

    Raimund Gregorious - Mundus, as his students affectionately call him - is a predictable character. A bookish Latin professor, well-respected but perhaps a little boring. One stormy morning, he encounters a beautiful, distraught Portuguese woman in a red leather coat... Later that day Raimund will realise: that moment changed everything. All of a sudden, nothing in his life feels right. His restlessness is further fuelled when he finds a book by a little-known Portuguese writer, Amadeo de Prado.

    Story

    Sorry had to give up, after a grinding eight chapters I finally gave in. The idea of the story was great but it just never got anywhere and was so slow it became boring. Although the narration was excellent the listener would have to have the patience of a saint to get through the detail, by then you have forgotten what was happening. A real shame, so many chapters gone to waste.
