Greene classified this 1932 novel as one of his "entertainments" to distinguish it from his more serious works. Set on the Orient Express, traveling from Ostend to Constantinople, the story features a varied cast, including a wealthy Jewish merchant, a chorus girl, a burglar turned murderer, an exiled nationalist/revolutionary, and assorted other passengers. Michael Maloney manages the multinational voices, effectively conveying the wide range of emotions in this tale on intrigue and subterfuge. The reading keeps the listener focused on what will happen next. An excellent performance. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
