A wonderful selection of mostly British characters awaits you in this story of London in the 1970s. A punk band that attracts large crowds with its fiery displays publishes a fanzine with pictures of police officers marked for death. When her beloved commander is attacked, Inspector Briony Williams (also targeted) investigates. Nicki Paull does all the voices—the Scottish commander, band members, two female hangers-on, an American journalist—with individuality and assuredness. As Briony herself—feisty in her job but vulnerable romantically—Paull is not afraid to emote. She keeps three intertwining plots going until they culminate in a tension-filled conclusion. A stand-out Australian production. J.B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
