Professional reviews

"Is the painting THE LAST SUPPER by Leonardo da Vinci what it appears to be, or is it filled with hidden codes and messages? A fifteenth-century Dominican Inquisitor sets out to learn the truth. Simon Jones's talent for developing clear and nuanced characterizations adds dimension to this complicated plot, wrapped in the history of secular and Church politics. His characters reflect the class and status distinctions that had great import within the Church at the time but which may not be otherwise obvious to listeners unfamiliar with Church hierarchy. Jones sets a strong, steady pace that keeps the plot moving. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
