It's 1940-41, and the settings are Paris, Odessa, Istanbul, Bucharest, and Belgrade. In this romantic, atmospheric tale of intrigue, reminiscent of Graham Greene, a Russian poet living in Paris becomes enmeshed in a plot to disrupt the flow of Romanian oil to Germany. George Guidall delivers the skilled and perceptive reading that we've come to expect. He excels with languages, accents, and voices of both genders. He is particularly adept at conveying the emotional lives of the characters without overdoing the drama, while his pacing adds to the suspense. An excellent performance. R.E.K.
