Call it "the power of three." Scrappy Tasmanian Jacko McKenzie and giant former New York gang leader Jimmy Oldcorn work miracles in a Chinese POW camp during the Korean War. After the war, a third musketeer joins the partnership in the oddly convincing person of Nicole Lenoir-Jourdain, a Russian countess with an unusual backstory. The nonfiction miracle here is worked by narrator Humphrey Bower, who goes from Jacko's squeaky Down Under accent to Jimmy's African-American bass to Nicole's posh Brit cello, in addition to covering Chinese, Korean, French, Russian, and German accents so flawlessly that you can't guess which accent he himself dreams in. One of the most amazing performances this reviewer has heard, and a gripping yarn, too. B.G.
