After reading and greatly enjoying the first in the Peter Cotton series, The Maze of Cadiz, I was curious to know what the follow-up would be like. It's always interesting to see how book two of a series will turn out and, in this case, I think Aly Monroe has not only lived up to expectations, but may have even produced a book that tops the first.

Niño Josele is a flamenco guitarist, though the guitar here is not so much flamenco as just simply good, jazzy, soft and in some ways almost Brazilian. The first piece, "Peace piece" is moving, delicate, and just utterly beautiful - one of those pieces that you have to listen to completely, paying attention only to the music, forgetting everything else around you. Number 4 is sung by Freddy Cole (Nat King Cole's brother), and is fabulous… Read more
