This production wonderfully enhances Hillerman's tale of adventure and intrigue in Southeast Asia. The abridgment is subtle and restrained, removing only a minor subplot. A versatile actor, Sanders speaks with a cool, journalistic style appropriate to the character of narrator "Moon" Mathias. The newspaper articles, dispatches and news flashes that introduce each chapter place the story of Moon's search for his dead brother's missing daughter within the context of the last days of the Vietnam War. Voices for different characters are varied without being forced or clichéd, even when Asian and female characters are portrayed. Appropriate music introduces and concludes each side. J.L.
