Summary

A young girl has mysteriously disappeared in Rome. On the case are Clemente and Marcus, two members of the ancient Penitenzeri: a unique team, linked to the Vatican, and trained in the detection of true evil.

Enjoyable thriller

I enjoyed this immensely. Largely set in Rome, with several interwoven stories, featuring around a dead journalist, his police investigator wife, a serial killer and agents of divine intervention. Lots of twists and turns, superably narrated as ever by Saul Reichlin.

Superb!

Complex narrative, made up of many threads that are carefully linked but difficult to unravel. Not a dull moment in this book. Could not stop listening. Saul Reichlen is of course one of the best narrators and he adds to the pleasure of this listen. Highly recommended. Hope to have more by this author soon!

Excellent follow-up

Great story and plotting. Enjoyed it almost as much as the Whisperer. Saul Reichlin is a joy to listen to.

Wow

Excellent story, engrossing and well performed. Very atmospheric too - I can imagine being there - in the churches and streets of Rome

Complex but kept you intrigued

Would you listen to The Lost Girls of Rome again? Why?

Don't know. I've never listened to any of my audible books again - thus far. Probably not, I couldn't really get on with the Narrator

What did you like best about this story?

The swift movement from character story line to another with each story slowly merging together in to an exciting finale

What three words best describe Saul Reichlin’s performance?

Bland, Inappropriate accents.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, because of monotone narration

Any additional comments?

If you are choosing a Narrator to cover a book based in the eternal city, then a person who can sound remotely Italian would have helped. The Narrator was able to pull off the Austrian/German accent very well for one key character, so it's not as if he was told to keep the same voice throughout. This spoilt otherwise an excellent story. In some ways I wish I'd bought the paperback. Sorry this is the first time I've been critical of an audio purchase.

Donato Carrisi continues to produce intricately

Donato Carrisi continues to produce intricately woven tales full of mystery, intrigue and suspense and deserves his place in the top tier of my library as does narrator Saul Reichlin. I look forward to the next in the series.
