Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Caprice and Rondo by Dorothy Dunnett, read by John Banks. 

January 1474, in the deep cold of an ice-bound Danzig: a man is spending a frivolous winter not facing up to his responsibilities.... It is the merchant Niccolo, diviner, soldier, banker to kings; shunned by all who know him after revelations of his murderous mischief-making. But his talents are too great to be squandered, and a subtle political dance ensues as rivals in Poland, Venice, and Persia bid for his services in trade and war and diplomacy. Niccolo has lost his family, but he will discover a new purpose in life....

Brilliant

The measured reading by John Banks catches every voice, every action, every thought, every twist of the plot - a wonderful sustained and consistent performance.
