'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.'
