The Gyrth family had guarded the Chalice for hundreds of years. It was held by them for the Crown. Its antiquity, its beauty, the extraordinary legends that were connected with it, all combined to make it unique of its kind. It was irreplaceable.
No thief could hope to dispose of it in the ordinary way. And indeed no ordinary thief would dream of trying. But there are others besides those who make their living by robbery, others who’s immense wealth and passion for collecting render them less immune to the practical considerations that must guide even the less honestly minded citizens.
These people cherish a desire to possess for their own private pleasure treasure that cannot be bought. And it was by this sort of person that the Chalice, and the lives and happiness of its guardians, were now threatened.

I've read this book more than once, through the years, and wondered what the audio addition would be like.....would it measure up. I was very pleased to discover that Albert had his usual puckish humor and Lugg was the same lovable rogue as in the book. Both are delightful characters with whom you'd like to have an adventure........ or tea!
