Episode 4

Mono closes in on "The Old Curiosity Shop" but all is not as it appears...and is he prepared for his most formidable foe yet?

Storyline

The ape-human hybrid secret agent and Queen's assassin, possessed of a deadly prehensile tail and 'the strength of twelve men', made his debut in the pulps of the 1930s and enjoyed a brief revival in the late 1960s and 70s.

But can it be that the fiction is closer to historic fact than was ever previously guessed?

Now a series of tales, told in hand-written journals and reported first-hand by those that knew him, reveal Mono as a dual-natured and conflicted adventurer--savage and noble; civilized, but ultimately untamable.

I enjoyed the heck out of this episode. Well done! Very cool intro to a new character and a suspenseful buildup to the main character's entrance. The sound and light effects helped create a terrific mood and the story flowed really smoothly. Top notch Motion Book reading experience.

As for the trivia, the poem is from the Nibelungenlied, (more specifically, from Richard Wagner's operatic adaptation) correct?

Glad you like it, Colin! You're correct for the poem in THIS episode--but the trivia question itself was in connection to #2!
