After the last prisoner, "Number Seven" dies, Spandau Prison is in Western Germany is destroyed, but not before a secret diary written by Prisoner Seven is discovered by a German policeman. This diary is sought by the Germans, the Russians, the British, and a neo-Nazi group seeking to create a Fourth Reich. Dick Hill brings diverse characters to life, including Thomas Horn, who might have been Rudolf Hess; police officers; Israeli spies; members of the South African military; and a host of others. The abridgment lacks the depth of the novel, but brings the underlying mystery to the fore. Hill conveys the fear, ruthlessness, and single-mindedness of a dangerous secret society and those it hunts. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
