Don't sit down to listen to this tape until you have a clear ten hours to spare because turning it off is next to impossible. During World War II a small group of commandos sneaks onto a German-held Greek island to destroy a gun battery which guards a strategic strait. The tale is gripping, and Steven Pacy makes it even more so as he narrates in a taut and spare style. Pacy's modulated, crisp British accent, his perfect understatement and timing convince listeners they are hearing a spontaneous account rather than a reading. A perfect choice for audio--particularly as the narrator so successfully captures the drama and characters. R.B.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 93]
