Alfred Armiger was like a bull in the ring, belligerent and sure of himself. But Armiger was mortal after all. There was no stronger proof of it than the blood that oozed from his skull, mingling with the red wine he'd spilled on the floor at the moment of impact.

What disappointed you about Death and the Joyful Woman?

Although I enjoy Campion books, I found I just couldn't listen to this one. The narrator's depiction of Campion sounded like a Julia Child parody. Other characters were voiced better, but the main voice was just off-putting.
