(3 stars)

Such a pity. An awesome book, good readers except for the one on chapters 5, 6, 24, 25, 26, who read in a fast unclear mubling.... I didn't care much for chapters 5, 6, but the others were just before the end of the book when I really wanted to understand the text. Very frustrating. Good that the very last chapter was read by someone else, so at least I got the final. This would be a 5 star book if the 5 chapters (of a total of 27) were redone by a better reader.

Excellent adventure/mystery

(4 stars)

The extremely skilled thief The Lone Wolf is finally caught by the greatest of all things, his heart, moving him to turn honest. This proves to be harder than he thought because a crime syndicate has taken notice of his special skills and they want him to join up... and they won't take no for an answer. Nicely read, recordings are pretty good. Thanks to all for their hard work.

I love wolves!
