This early Higgins novel is an excellent choice for dramatization. The story of a daring Nazi commando raid into a small English village in 1943 has some surprising consequences. The prelude to the actual landing is staged in German and English scenes, perfectly suited to radio-style dramatization. Nazi generals with thick accents, an undercover IRA assassin using a lilting brogue and a German agent in the guise of the perfect English country woman offer excellent roles for the talented cast. The use of sound effects is good, and the production offers suspense to the last moments. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 93]
