Mystery & Suspense • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1990

This classic Morrell action-thriller is one of his most popular (1990) in print. Two executive protectors, the traditions of Japanese Samurai, and their code of honor form the core of the story. The production is labeled "full cast" and, while not precisely dramatized, makes use of multiple voices, and a few echo effects popular in recordings done at the time. The story hurtles through 14 hours of international intrigue, false memories, the chilling concept of psycho-surgery, and a short history of Japanese warrior culture. None of the actors are identified, and some artistic choices are better than others. Occasional overdone accents and echoey sound quality detract, but the production introduces Morrell's driving style, and for fans the refinement of performance may not matter.
