In a style reminiscent of old-time radio, Joe Barrett skillfully draws listeners into a grisly drama with Machiavellian plot twists. Barrett’s British accent is perfect for the part of the British intelligence agent, and he portrays the main character with skill. He also sounds appropriately childlike as a frightened 7-year-old girl, conveying her terror at witnessing the chilling betrayal and death of her parents. While building accute tension, he remains sensitive to background, class and accent. An excellent dramatization is blemished only by the use of foul language.
