Wormwood, read here by Robert Powell, follows the exceptional success of GP Taylor s bestselling first book, Shadowmancer. Dr Sabian Blake astronomer, scientist, and master of the Kabbalah is in possession of the Nemorensis, an ancient leather-bound book which holds the secrets of the universe. Leafing through it one night, he reads a mysterious inscription in the margin: Wormwood the bright star shall fall from the sky and many will die from its bitterness. Deciphering this prophecy could prove the key to saving London from a catastrophic fate. But there are others interested in the Nemorensis too for more sinister reasons. Blake and his serving maid Agetta Lamian soon become enmeshed in a web of sorcery, as agents of both good and evil battle to possess the book and gain its power. They will face great danger, and must decide who to trust for the wrong decision could cost them their souls...

Clever spinster and sleuth Miss Jane Marple is at her sharpest in this classic Agatha Christie novel. "Nemesis" is defined as an adversary or competitor, but as this production unfolds in the hands of the impeccable cast led by June Whitfield, the listener is encouraged to consider that perhaps the title is actually a clue. Miss Marple must unravel a decades-old crime with no clues, hardly any suspects, and nothing concrete to go on. This dramatization is excellent in every facet as it captures the world of proper spinsters, as well as the peculiarities of English villages and the folks who inhabit them. The vocal characterizations are crisp and distinctive, reinforcing at every turn the appropriateness of this story to the audio format.
