A PRISONER OF BIRTH

by | Read by Roger Allam

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2008

After his friend is killed in a fight outside a pub, Danny Cartwright is sent to prison for the murder on the testimony of the real killer. Danny's quest for revenge will hold few surprises for anyone familiar with THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO. But Jeffrey Archer has fun with his revenge tale and even puts his real-life prison stint (for perjury and perverting justice) to use in his descriptions of life behind bars. Roger Allam's narration will make listeners want to keep going without a break. Allam builds tension in the clockwork plot while creating memorable characters with a mix of upper-class and lower-class accents. Even those who know what's coming will enjoy this sharp thriller.
