And Grover Gardner is still the most wonderful narrator. The combo of Lois' words and his voice always makes me feel like the story is creating itself right inside my head
Penric is enjoying a relaxing day fishing with his Shaman friend Inglas, when they are both requested by law man/Locator Oswyl. A temple sorcerer has been found dead from arrow wounds. Who killed her? What happened to her demon? And why?
Penric, with assistance from Inglas and others, especially Pen's Demon Desdemona ultimately solve the mystery. And I found it an entertaining mystery/fantasy story. But the real deep joy of the story is to watch the evolving relationships between Penric, Desdemona, and all the rest of the very real characters, including the Princess Arch Divine. I have grown to love these characters.
And, as always, Grover Gardner does a great job of reading the tale. The entire Penric/Desdemona saga is a delight. In internal chronological order, at time of publication this novella comes third, after Penric's Demon and Penric and the Shaman, and before Penric's Mission.
