Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1975

Higgins's bestselling 1975 novel has lost none of its punch, thanks to Christopher Cazenove's superb delivery. The German plot to send paratroopers into a small village to kidnap/kill Winston Churchill gets new life, thanks to a superb audio rendition. Each character is individually voiced: the devious Himmler, the IRA revolutionary, the young girl whom he romances, the local traitor (female), the German Steiner, who speaks perfect English, the stuffy British nobility, the priest, who is young at the time but returns many years later as a sick old man. Action alternates with pastoral village scenes, sometimes without much pause. This last quibble aside, this is a winner. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
