British narrator Derek Perkins authentically delivers this spy story set in Paris in the early twentieth century. His facility with accents makes for an outstanding listening experience as he depicts James "Max" Maxted's investigation into the death of his father, a diplomat involved in the Paris Peace Conference after WWI. With verve and flawless pacing, Perkins displays excellent storytelling skills. His French and American accents are good, so the international cast is fully believable, and the clever plot moves forward quickly and precisely. Listeners familiar with Goddard’s thrillers won’t be surprised by the many twists in the plot. The serialized ending leaves the story open for the next installment. S.C.A.
