Hypnotic voodoo beats, lush jungle noises, tropical rains, an enigmatic European professor, an alluring female anthropologist....these are a few of the ingredients that M. Fulton has fashioned into his latest audio fantasy, Dreams of Rio, an engaging romp through the forests and samba clubs of Brazil. Dreams of Rio chronicles the tropical adventures of hero Jack Flanders as he treks through the mysterious wilds of Brazilian rainforests and impossible situations in his search for the Lost City. The crisp stereo recordings come vibrantly to life with luscious ambient sound recorded by Fulton and Clark on location in Brazil. Dreams follows Jack as he escapes from the U.S., a country transformed into a giant shopping mall, and undertakes a journey to Rio to retrieve a statue for a friend. Once in his hands, the statue cracks open to reveal a crystal skull. This is just the beginning of an endless chain of chilling plot twists and turns. Along the way, Jack encounters vampire bats, voodoo musicians, a Carmen Miranda museum, and an alluring German anthropologist, Frieda, with whom he falls hopelessly in love. Together they journey to the Lost City. 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/zbsf/000038/rt_zbsf_000038_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
