Publisher's Summary

Set against the tumultuous backdrop of Southern France, Sepulchre is the stunning new novel of obsession and revenge from the number-one best-selling author of Labyrinth. October 1891: A young girl, Léonie Verniern, and her brother, Anatole, abandon the gas-lit streets of Paris for the sanctuary of the Domaine de la Cade, some miles south of the medieval city of Carcassone. But, in the ancient woods that surround the isolated country house, Léonie stumbles across a ruined Visigoth sepulcher - and a timeless mystery whose traces are written in blood. As she peels back the layers of the past, she uncovers the existence of a unique deck of tarot cards that are rumoured to hold the power of life and death.
October 2007: Researching a biography of the composer Claude Debussy in the apparent tranquility of the Pyrenean foothills, Meredith Marin also seeks the key to her own complex legacy. Armed with a haunting piece of piano music and a sepia photograph, she soon becomes immersed in the story of a tragic love, a missing girl, an unquiet soul, and the strange events of one cataclysmic night more than a century ago.
As the Feast of All Saints approaches, when the veil between life and death is at its thinnest, Meredith is drawn inexorably to a secluded forest glade where the secrets of the past are far from buried.

Disappointing!

Liked Labyrinth. Gave up on this 1/2 way through, which I hate doing. But it is SO dull, and has hackneyed phrases such as " She felt as if the [taro reader] was looking into her soul". Yuck. Plot is slow, characters not interesting. Waste of my money and my time

Poor Narration

I agree totally with the other reviewer.... I so wanted to listen to this book, after reading Labyrinth and actually waiting for this to appear on audible. But it is a huge dissapointment due to the narration. Why choose an american? This woman is so so wrong for the part? And the musical interludes? WHY???? Oh what a shame.... I couldn't manage more than ten or fifteen minutes of listening time and I have abandoned my brand new i touch and gone back to the BOOK for this one. Sad waste of an audio credit....

Listen carefully!

In my haste to enjoy the book, I made the mistake of opting for purchasing without listening to the sample. A fine narrator is the key to an audiobook and this one falls at the first hurdle. I admit this is my own mistake bit I will not be opting for anything narrated by Lorelei King again: I'm scratchy about her pronunciation and in this case her accent does not suit the story. Add to this an opening with mock-'The Exorcist' music and it all seems rather down-market. I suppose you get what you pay for.

To be entirely upfront this review is based on only a couple of minutes listening. I may manage to listen to it all, as it is a mere 7 hours. Be warned - always listen to the sample first.
