Tim Sebastian writes spy novels for devotees who regret the passing of the Cold War. Sebastian perfectly creates the atmosphere of post-Wall Berlin--where East and West, friend and foe are no longer clearly defined. Simon Prebble unfolds the tale of intrigue as James Martin, a British-born defector, as he struggles to survive the change of allegiances. Prebble is a master of pacing, capturing each change of venue or character with subtle inflection. With consummate skill Prebble matches his cadence not only to the text and the characters, but to the listeners' reactions, as well. He echoes the ambiguity of the characters with careful phrasing, heightened pitch and judicious use of pauses. For spy fiction fans, let Prebble and Sebastian bring you a treat. R.F.W.
