The fencing master and the amazon
A great story with a flavor of the classic novels (like Dumas) narrated by a great narrator.
However, I think it is a pity that this was not an unabridged work.

This is a beautifully written, deeply engrossing mystery with an eloquent, unforgettable portrayal of an aging hero.
Michael York's reading is nothing short of brilliant.
