Children Ages 8+ • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Martin Conway, who numbly attends an upscale private school, is pulled out of his ennui by a strange call from his grandmother right before her death. His curiosity increases when the art deco radio she bequeaths him introduces him to Jimmy, a figure from the past who asks for his help. Martin is introduced to a maze of mysterious parallels and alternating times and places, all of which are kept straight through the strong narration of Robertson Dean. Dean shifts accents easily as Martin time-travels to Jimmy's world, Blitz-filled London of 1940. Dean's resonant tones have a haunting quality for a tale that has otherworldly elements and a dream-like mission that may bring redemption to several characters.
