Narrator Daniel Weyman ably performs the final installment in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books quartet. Primarily set in Barcelona, the story focuses on the last mission of secret police agent Alicia Gris, who must return to her native city where 20 years earlier she was orphaned during the Spanish Civil War. Weyman beautifully balances the plot layers, taking a light tone when describing young love and increasing the tension and tightening his delivery when Alicia and her partner are targeted for assassination after discovering long-buried Franco government corruption. Family secrets, rare books, and unexpected allies round out the satisfying conclusion to the series. Weyman's British accent detracts from the Spanish atmosphere of the story, but his believable pronunciations and solid characterizations fully capture listeners' attention.
