According to Jewish legend, there are 36 righteous people on Earth at any given time. Without them, humanity would perish. But the 36 do not know they are the chosen ones, and many are dying. A monk in Beijing, an economist in Mumbai, a glassmaker in Venice and more have all perished under bizarre circumstances, with strange marks on their backs. Veteran Danish detective Niels Bentzon is called to investigate. He's ready to dismiss the assignment-but then he meets Hannah, a brilliant astrophysicist mourning the death of her son. Together, they piece together the puzzle of these far-flung deaths, and a pattern emerges. Thirty-four have died, and only Bentzon and Hannah can predict the time and place of the final two.

"Listening to Simon Vance read A.J. Kazinski's mystery is like hearing an expert musician perform Mozart. The story is clever, and Vance's style brings out every nuance. At its core, the book focuses upon Danish detective Niels Bentzon and scientist Hannah Lund. Together they realize that the deaths of 34 people worldwide are tied to an ancient Jewish belief that there exist 36 righteous people on earth who, unbeknownst to themselves, must protect humanity. Bentzon and Lund's search to solve the mystery and prevent the remaining two people from being murdered takes them around the globe. Vance's uncanny ability to create a unique style for each character, and his smooth yet convincing ability to turn dialogue into an art form make the performance as memorable as the plot. D.J.S.
