When Dr Alice Tanner discovers two skeletons during an archaeological dig in southern France, she unearths a link with a horrific and brutal past. But it's not just the sight of the shattered bones that makes her uneasy; there's an overwhelming sense of evil in the tomb that Alice finds hard to shake off, even in the bright French sunshine. Puzzled by the words carved inside the chamber, Alice has an uneasy feeling that she has disturbed something which was meant to remain hidden...Eight hundred years ago, on the night before a brutal civil war ripped apart Languedoc, a book was entrusted to Alais, a young herbalist and healer. Although she cannot understand the symbols and diagrams the book contains, Alais knows her destiny lies in protecting their secret, at all costs. Skilfully blending the lives of two women divided by centuries but united by a common destiny, LABYRINTH is a powerful story steeped in the atmosphere and history of southern France. Read by Anton Lesser and Emilia Fox

Reviews

'One of the most gifted masters of narration has to be the actor Anton Lesser... As co-reader of Kate Mosse's LABYRINTH (Orion, 16.99), he is equally superb, and along with another tried and tested voice of the spoken word market, Emilia Fox, this particular title is one of the most absorbing audiobooks I have enjoyed for some time. In this compelling adventure story, the writer clevery intertwines the lives of two women' -- Vidar Hjardeng Disability Now, March 2006 'Mosse's number one bestseller is a gripping adventure that shifts between 13th-century Carcassonne and a present-day archaeological dig.' The Observer, 05.02.06 'LABYRINTH Is a spellbinding tale of courage, destiny and betrayal, time-shifting between medieval and contemporary Carcassonne. The story is read, entrancingly, by Emilia Fox and Anton Lesser, and grips from start to finish.' -- Paul Dumont OTTAKARS Shelf Talker reviews 'Even more fantastic is Labyrinth (Orion 16.99), Kate Mosse's contribution to the loony legends of the Holy Grail. This one features sliding stones, runic symbols, demonic murderesses and a reincarnated heroine. Read breathlessly by Emilia Fox, it rackets about between Cathar Carcassonne and 21st-century archaeology and makes for amusing, even exciting listening, as long as you don't take it seriously.'
