Listeners who enjoyed last year's recording of THE THIRD MAN should enjoy this as well. Like Graham Greene's novel, it thrusts an innocent man of honor--in this case, fencing master Don Jaime de Asterola--into a world of passion and betrayal. De Asterola's search for answers after the murder of one of his clients becomes a life-and-death fencing match, a theme stressed by the passages of fencing advice that follow each plot twist. Michael York conveys de Asterola's newfound passions--for love, vengeance and survival--with his own master's touch. He also draws a few laughs with the dry wit that leavens the novel.
