Nazi forces dominate Europe, and the Allies in England are using an elaborate subterfuge to convince Germany of a massive invasion, purposely creating confusion as to its location. A German operative named Die Nadel, "The Needle," calculating and ruthless, is entrusted by Hitler himself to find out the truth. Fans of old-time radio drama will particularly enjoy this full-cast version. Narrator Eric Lincoln proceeds smoothly, until the action starts cooking, and his urgency turns up the heat. The small ensemble creates a wide range of lead and supporting characters. There are flaws--actors occasionally sound as if they're too far from the microphone, and there are both melodrama and stereotypes--but the story's compelling suspense hurtles listeners to the riveting conclusion.
