How often does a listening experience all come together? The occasion of a mystery, travelogue, and romance is rare. But here we have Harry Barnett living as a caretaker in Rhodes at the villa of a friend when a young woman, a guest at the villa, disappears off a mountain. Then there is the reading by Paul Shelley, which accentuates all the pieces that tie this well-written work together. Shelley's pronunciation of Greek makes one want to learn the language. Then he criss-crosses the Continent, speaking all the dialects along the way. It's a long piece, but stimulating enough to make the listener continue with the story. J.P.
