Lisbon, 1755: A distinguished-looking gentleman emerges from the bowels of a ship freshly arrived from London, and sets into the city with a singular purpose. This is Sebastian Foxx, born Sebastiao Raposa, and his parents were abducted by the Inquisition when Sebastian was just 13 years old. Now trained in the arts of coercion by bounty hunter Benjamin Weaver - whom listeners will recognize from several of Liss's other novels - Sebastian has returned to the city to repay old debts… and to find the man who killed his father. He'll need money. He'll need power. But most importantly, he'll need to find his allies and identify his enemies among the Inquisition's spies. David Liss is the author of The Twelfth Enchantment, The Whiskey Rebels, The Ethical Assassin, A Spectacle of Corruption, The Coffee Trader, and A Conspiracy of Paper, winner of the 2000 Edgar Award for Best First Novel.

Action packed adventure in an unusual setting
- Jean "I am an avid eclectic reader."
I never knew how powerful the Inqistion in Portual
Some of the little known his of how oppressed the "New Christian" (Jews) in Lisbon
suffered and died for nothing but to keep the church rich.
The story told a tale with alot of twist and had more than a few surpises
The reader Mr Roukin was masterful as always I enjoy his reads
Time would not allow that but I finished it as soon as possible
Wasn't too crazy about the ending and hope Mr Liss will write another
- Dennis "Currently a local truck driver who has hours to listen to my audio books. I am hooked, some of my fellow drivers enjoy them also"
