passionate railway enthusiast Eric Lomax was taken prisoner by the Japanese in 1941, tortured and forced to help construct the hated Burma-Siam railway. After the war, he spent years trying to the heal the wounds left by his tormentors and was finally able to do so only after an unforgettable encounter with the face that had haunted him over the years--that of his Japanese interrogator. Noted Scottish actor Bill Paterson turns reader to become the voice of Lomax. In carefully measured tones and tightly controlled intensity, Paterson's narration is alternately tense and comforting. His clipped Scottish working-class accent matches perfectly this moving and unusual account. P.E.F. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 97]
