I have always loved the writings of Dave Duncan. His characters are rich with personality and life, and his stories are always captivating. He has done it again with "The Alchemist's Apprentice." This time he has wove his characters into an engaging mystery rivaled only by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Clever, fun little tale, with parallels to Nero Wolfe (Rex Stout) throughout. If you like Archie and Nero, you'll also very much enjoy this clever mystery in a historical setting. I'm looking forward to the next one, now that I'm more at home in ancient Venice.

Where does The Alchemist's Apprentice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Up near the top. A great story, well told, it captures what Venice might have been like in the past. Good characters with great research of the subject.
Who was your favorite character and why?
All the characters are well drawn but the Alchemist himself must win for me. He is so on top of things! The Apprentice is great too.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I enjoyed the whole book! However the final revelation of the ‘who done it’ is always good.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It is just so RIGHT, spot on. It is now like an old friend I visit regularly. Makes me smile...
Any additional comments?
Yes, I only wish there were more books in this series, 3 is not enough.
