After enduring eight years of prison and abuse, he is incarcerated in Caridad Monastery where the abbot recruits him to help solve two murders. In the course of his investigations, Father Ignaz finds his own life in peril.
"A rollicking mystery full of plot twists based on real events, interesting characters modeled after historical figures, and more." (Steve Bennett, book editor for the San Antonio Express-News)

The Impossible Dream
Alive, Engaging, Real
Throughout, the way the tension builds incrementally without seeming forced or contrived
How one voice can bring to life the interior and exterior of so many characters is a mystery to me.
I sat in the parking lot (of my destination) for 45 minutes to finish the chapter I had just begun when I arrived. It was that good.
I don't like audio books. I prefer the "feel" of a paper book in my hands, and I was skeptical about this on in particular because I had so enjoyed "Storks" when I read it some years ago. But THIS audio book was "the impossible dream" .. and audio book that moved as quickly and as surely as original. Weinberg's Pfefferkorn has found the perfect voice in Filbrich, and comes alive in a new way. I cannot say enough good things about this merging. I enjoyed it on several levels.
