Publisher's Summary

Patty Doyle holds the secret to eternal life, but it may only bring her an early death. Patty is working on a journal of a 14th Century alchemist. But after mentioning it in her blog she gets to the office to find everyone brutally murdered. Now she's on the run pursued by a killer who wants the secret of eternal life it contains. The Concordances of the Red Serpent is a thriller set in the USA, Canada and Scotland and echoes back to the glossy caper movies of Hitchcock. Mix with a bit of Da Vinci Code type musings on alchemical secrets and stir well.

The Concordances

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great mystery. It was fun and scary traveling all over Scotland.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Alex Seton. What a wonderful character he is. Smart, funny brave and kind. A true man of mystery!

Which scene was your favorite?

All of them. I just enjoyed getting to know Alex, Patti, Mike and Sam. I wasn't ready for the story to end.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

The narrator Chris Barnes was the perfect voice for this book. He's got a wonderful Scottish accent that was easy to understand and very easy on the ears. I'd listen to most anything he read, except romance!!

Not My Kind of Story But Still Superb

Would you listen to The Concordances of the Red Serpent again? Why?

This is not my kind of story. I prefer horror and darker the story, the more I like it. That said, yes, I would listen to this story again. It is full of likable characters, beautiful settings and twists and turns throughout.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Alex Seton was my favorite. He's a mysterious Scottish gentleman. What's not to like?

Have you listened to any of Chris Barnes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to almost all of Chris Barnes's other stories. In this one, he doesn't do a lot of different accents and voices, and listeners really get a taste of his true talent as he has to rely strictly on his 'normal' voice to keep his listeners riveted to the story. Of course, he succeeds brilliantly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was not a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting, and that's not a bad thing. I spent every evening for almost a week looking forward to the time I could spend listening to this book and found myself making excuses to listen, if only for a few minutes. I really didn't want it to end.

Any additional comments?

The Concordances of the Red Serpent is a fantastic collaboration of a great author and a great narrator. You can't go wrong with the Meikle/Barnes combination and there are just enough scary moments in this book to give you a thrill without being too scary.
