Editorial Reviews

Queen Flavia of Ruritania is dutifully, although unhappily, married to the dissolute King Rudolf, but her true love is the monarch's distant English cousin and lookalike Rudolf Rassendyll. After a love letter she sends him is intercepted by the dastardly villain Rupert of Hentzau, Rassendyll is forced to return to Ruritania and impersonate the king once more. Narrator Rufus Wright's commanding performance captures the outsized moments of this swashbuckling tale, revealing both malice and heroism in the characters. Wright's brisk tempo will have listeners eagerly following along to find out how - or if - Rassendyll will restore peace to Ruritania for a second time.

Publisher's Summary

An incriminating love-letter from the Queen of Ruritania to Rudolph Rassendyll, the hero of The Prisoner of Zenda, is intercepted by the dastardly villain Rupert of Hentzau, who is intent on causing trouble for the Royal Family. Rassendyll is forced to return to save the day and again assume his impersonation of King Rudolph. Once more he is embroiled in a world of deception, intrigue, deadly swordfights and strained loyalties, but will he be able to restore peace to Ruritania a second time?
