It's unusual for a reader with a proper English accent to convincingly speak pure American. Page does it flawlessly in this exciting tale of WWII espionage, making the Germans and even a cockney seem real. Katarina Hendrick, a German spy and talented killer who has been in deep cover in the U.S. for ten years, discovers U.S. atomic secrets and sets on a bloody mission to convey them to the Nazi masters. A British professor turned double agent attempts to stop her--AND rescue his wife from a concentration camp. As the unique plot twists and turns, it's clear the two are on a collision course. As a rule, this listener is not fond of British readers--they tend to make the action seem slower--but Page is a clear exception. His dynamic narration is crisp, and he moves the action along relentlessly. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
