Mister is the complex, despicable crime boss of London. His business is drug running; his specialty is total control and ruthlessness. As he plans an expansion into the Balkans, British Customs and Excise and Internal Security follow in one last desperate attempt to subdue him. They’ve lost him before, you see, as he owns an alarming number of bent coppers. Gerard Doyle offers an exquisite narration of this terrific thriller. He expands the text in so many subtle ways, offering listeners a multicolored, nuanced experience. His Mister is a fascinating terror, whose voice echoes his iron self-control. The Customs and Excise underling on his trail blends insecurity and determination perfectly. Occasions of simple narration in Doyle’s well-paced, pleasant voice are also examples of how such things are done. Beautiful. A.C.S.
