A serial killer has strangled his latest victim and escaped onto a cruise ship leaving London that very night. Within days, Superintendent Roderick Alleyn is sent onboard, undercover, to find the culprit before he strikes again. James Saxon has a beautifully modulated voice. If you're a fan of the British mystery on audio, you'll have heard him before. His voice has aged well, like a fine, full-bodied wine. He plays the characters here as exaggerations of type: the repressed school teacher, the femme fatale, the lush TV actor well on his way to a nervous breakdown. His treatment paints the scenes with a broad brush but achieves the overall effect of a vivid story. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
