Special Branch Agent Thomas Pitt and his wife, Charlotte, pursue separate investigations of different crimes, only to find them tragically connected. Both offenses resulted from a mosque fire in Egypt some twenty years earlier. Michael Page's low, understated voice gives perfect characterization to turn-of-the-century Brits and Egyptians, both male and female. While preserving the gravity of the crime drama, his mellow tones bring compassion to the heart of a jaded inspector and spirited worry to the voice of an aggrieved and uneducated house servant. Page knows just when to pick up the pace and when to linger over an emotional or complex passage, lending balance to the entire production. R.P.L.
