Anything can happen on the Orient Express. Unfortunately, nothing much occurs on this trip. Despite the multilingual skills of Liza Ross and her ability to portray different ages, genders and nationalities credibly, there's no one on board with whom the listener can sympathize: not American Joanna James, torn between two British lovers, nor the beautiful Parisienne enroute to a wedding she doesn't want, nor any of the other various star-crossed characters. Liza Ross is well worth hearing, but listeners will do better to wait for a book with more substance. B.L.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
