Narrator Sam Peter Jackson capably delivers as he portrays a no-nonsense German wizard in this addition to the Rivers of London series. When a man turns up dead in a vineyard under mysterious circumstances, the locals know to call in Tobias Winter, seasoned policeman and experienced wizard. Jackson's melodic and authentic-sounding German accent pulls the listener into a story grounded in the history of the Moselle wine region. Toby is witty and acerbic without sounding cruel. Jackson does an equally effective job voicing Toby's partner, an enthusiastic, young local cop, Detective Vanessa Sommer, as well as a wide variety of local wine buffs and two river goddesses. This production serves as an excellent complement to the series or a delightful stand-alone. N.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
