Rogue Angel
38 : The Matador's Crown

by Alex Archer
Feb 1, 2013
5 Hours
Ages 13+
An invitation too irresistible to refuse from the Museum of Cadiz leads archaeologist Annja Creed to the sun-drenched southern coast of Andalucia, Spain. In a region rich in Moorish and Roman ruins, she leaps at the chance to join a dig across the Bay of Cadiz, where she unearths a bronze bull statue that makes the entire trip worth every minute. Until the day after her discovery, when she sees the same artifact beside the body of a dead Spaniard, killed by the estocada, the final sword thrust used by bullfighters to bring down the bull.

Whoever killed the man left clear signs of having taken something. And yet the bronze bull remained. What was so valuable the murderer chose it over a priceless artifact? How had her find come into this dead man''s hands? With few leads and a growing body count, Annja''s investigation takes her through a colorful world of flamenco and bullfighting to a renowned matador and an illegal-and deadly-collection of Visigoth votive crowns.

The Matador's Crown by Chris (Posted on 10/19/2017)
The story line (Alex Archer) is so incredibly disjointed. Annja is being stupid. Garin is all over the place. Soto is playing both sides and seems to be equally earnest. The seeming reason he allows the murderer such leeway is beyond me. Harlow doth protest too much. What was with Ava? I don't see the point of bringing Drake in. What was the point of going to that warehouse? Why would the "thieves' ignore them and then chase them later?

In the confrontation at the dig when Annja and Garin find the dead body, why doesn't Crockett at least ask Annja what's up? Why doesn't she ask/he tell what he saw? Instead he simply makes a blanket statement and Annja never asks for details. There are so many loose ends.

The best I can say of this story is that we do learn about bullfighting and the best bulls for the ring. Interesting detail of the origin of the veronica.

Love the bullfighting scenes! Many different problems happening at the same time gets a little confusing but tie up together at the end. Great story!

Review by Johnny Tai (Posted on 5/23/2013)
A fantastic episode- this one recatchers the glory of this series with some great cultural references, actions, and mistery. The music's fitting, the accents well done, and the plot is interesting enough to keep one following all the way through.

The bullfights are superbly reproduced- I dare say it's even better than when you read the book itself- to actually hear the crowd, the sound of the bull, the motions of the matador...this is drama at its best.

Of course, it has some very frustrating moment such as the author using Spanish words that some readers have no idea what they mean- kinda force you to stop and google before continuing the book...lol

The plot has some holes as well, such as the roll of the pliceman, why he sent Ava after Anja and then was all friendly again...and who sent that Asian assassin with the nunchaku, and the matador's reasonings and ending...there are alot of unaddressed issues that leaves the readers in a kind of 'wtf' state.

Strictly speaking though, it's a great production, and I believe it's one of the best Rogue Angels for quite a few books now.
Review by Wayne Noble (Posted on 5/23/2013)
My last Rogue Angel until the new ones come out. Listening to all of them back to back kinda makes you feel like they are family. It was nice that Collen Delaney is now doing the intro and credits. As far as the story goes it was very disjointed. I didn't find that this one flowed but rather that it was forced. Too many characters and to many different scenarios. I still don't understand Ava's role or why all the bad guys that were stealing artificats didn't get caught but they all got away. The only death on the bad guys part was the one with the crowns. I'm confused about Garrin fit into this story. It just didn't seem to flow or have a reason for people being there. As far as the production, it was great. Great music score, sound effects and voices the plot was just in my opinion lacking a lot. The last two previous authors, Joseph Nassisie and Mel Odom are by far the best authors for this series. The ending of a book to me is as important as the whole book. If the ending don't make since it messes up a really good book as in number 6 the lost scrolls. High action but the ending was terrible and made the book seem senseless. Book 5 seemed to drag on but the ending was so good that it made up for some of the drag. But anyways, would like to buy the next two as soon as they come out. Hurry up GA!!! HaHa
