During a crowded service at a cathedral in Germany, armed intruders in monks' robes unleash a nightmare of blood and destruction. But the killers have not come for gold; they seek a more valuable prize: the bones of the Magi who once paid homage to a newborn savior...a treasure that could reshape the world.

A good read

Map of Bones, like Amazonia and Ice Hunt before it (in an audio book sense), follows a bit of a formula. Many of the story elements are the same but the setting and the subject matter are very different. As a result I enjoyed this book as much as those others.

The narrator continues to do a fantastic job of making the characters distinct and making the action come alive.

Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than 70 years. The twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union, it was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible. But an American undersea research vessel has inadvertently pulled too close - and something has been sighted moving inside the allegedly deserted facility, something whose survival defies every natural law.

I have just recently gotten into audio books to make my long commute bearable. The subject of this book was enjoyable, the plot was just twisty enough, the characters were interesting.

But what really kept me listening was the reader. The quality of Mr. Meagher's voice got this Audible recording its 4th star. I will look for his readings in the future.
