Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bill Wallis

Mystery & Suspense • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

This is a remarkably felicitous blend of narrator and author, both determined to have fun and to give listeners a grand time. When a British diplomat is shot dead after finishing a mysterious swim near Istanbul, the Foreign Service sends out an investigator, who becomes our guide through events taking place in the pre-WWI Ottoman Empire. The adventures offer Bill Wallis a grand opportunity to display numerous accents and to create audio portraits of everyone from a cockney actress to a Turkish policeman to a British-educated Ottoman sultan. In addition, Wallis is a master of dialogue—undercurrents, emotions, and characters are crystalline. This is audiobook acting at its best. A.C.S.
