SPY HOOK is the first book in Len Deighton's highly regarded espionage trilogy, which includes later books SPY LINE and SPY SINKER. Bernard Samson, the cool, cynical British Secret Agent, is now stuck behind a desk at London Central, relegated to jobs no one else wants. Then he discovers millions of pounds missing and cannot resist pursuing the investigation far beyond normal channels. This production by Blackstone, with plenty of audio power and well-paced tape changes, is what more audio publications should be. Reader Robert Whitfield presents a diverse cast of international characters in a smooth, seamless delivery without a trace of forced accents or gender representation. Deighton fans are sure to love SPY HOOK, while newcomers may find the experience a bit stodgy. T.J.M. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
