In the fall of 1886, Edgar Drake receives a commission by "Her Royal Majesty's War Office" to tune an Erard grand piano in Burma for an eccentric, yet cunning, army surgeon-major. British reader Graeme Malcolm escorts listeners on a captivating and frightening journey to the jungles of Burma with narrative perfection. As Drake finds himself immersed in circumstances he never expected to encounter, Malcolm provides the backdrop for the tale with colorful acting. Malcolm has the ability to enmesh the listener with his narrative while cleverly slipping into the background. As Drake encounters soldiers, snakes, mystics, and political quagmires, Malcolm creates the aura of another world and time filled with exploration, adventure, and self-discovery. B.J.P.
