In this prequel to Luke McCallin's series featuring Gregor Reinhardt, a German intelligence officer in the 1940s, we meet young Lieutenant Reinhardt in the waning days of WWI. As he investigates the bombing of a military meeting, Reinhardt probes a situation that involves doctors taking advantage of battle-damaged minds. John Lee, who has performed McCallin's other Reinhardt books, makes excellent use of his distinctive baritone and crisp enunciation to keep the action moving in this complex story. He uses a staccato rhythm and plosive emphasis on consonants that support the action sequences but sound oddly stilted during conversations. Despite this, Gregor Reinhardt's many fans will welcome this new drama about an interesting character. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
