    Venice, a really long time ago: Three prominent Venetians await their most loathsome and foul dinner guest, the erstwhile envoy from Britain who also happens to be a favorite of the Doge: The rascal-Fool Pocket. This trio of cunning plotters have lured Pocket to a dark dungeon, promising a spirited evening. Their invitation is, of course, bogus. These scoundrels have something far less amusing planned for the man who has consistently foiled their quest for power and wealth. But this Fool is no fool.…

    Story

    ...as "Fool" and "Sacre Bleu." Christopher Moore has (finally) found his ideal narrator in Euan Morton. The novel itself is a sort-of followup to "Fool" and features the same narrator, this time playing with Othello, the Merchant and Marco Polo. As usual with Moore, this is a wild ride through history (and Shakespeare) and very, very funny, although a bit too much plot sometimes overwhelms the characters. Morton's reading, however, takes full advantage of the material: witty, vulgar, farcical. I have read the book once and listened to the audio twice; Morton is brilliant. I only wish Morton had read earlier Moore novels, but hope their audio partnership continues.
