This slightly improbable story of a scheme to stop a massive drug smuggling operation translates beautifully to the audio format. Nigel Davenport portrays protagonist Nick Warren, the London doctor who is a "combination St. George and James Bond," capturing his intensity and dynamism with great charm. The cast, several of whom follow the "honor among thieves" adage, provides ample opportunity for Davenport's considerable talent. For some characters he uses subtle inflection while others are given a rich, full accent. Even the cadence and speech of the sole American is captured with aplomb. The story's action and the aural characterizations make a highly successful combination. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 92]
