Mystery & Suspense • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1968

Evan Michael Tanner may be a spy--maybe not. The only Tanner certainties are his permanent insomnia (his sleep center was destroyed in the Korean War), his support of underdogs and revolutionaries, and his unfailing ability to get into more trouble with less effort than anyone. It's 1967. Tanner's adopted daughter wants to visit the Montreal Expo. However, Canada suspects Tanner of being a terrorist. When the two cross the border illegally, the insanity begins. Narrator Nick Sullivan is a winner. He nails each of Tanner's sardonic throwaway lines. Sullivan turns run-ins with the Mounties, some dastardly Cubans, and a Québecois separatists' cell into high farce. His Canadian accents are a hoot, helping to make Lawrence Block's tongue-in-cheek romp a whole lot of fun. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
