Mystery & Suspense • 6.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

The unchallenged master of the contemporary spy novel turns his attention to the Dark Continent. Bruno "Salvo" Salvador, son of an Irish missionary and a Congolese woman, straddles both worlds as an interpreter of minority African languages, who is married to an aristocratic British journalist and passionately involved with a Congolese nurse. Salvo is hired to be the interpreter for a secret meeting between central African leaders and a mining syndicate. Unfortunately, he hears more than he should about the fate of the Congo--knowledge that could kill him. Award-winning British actor David Oyelowo has the perfect voice--smooth, rich, almost hypnotic in timbre and emotion--to tell this cloak-and-dagger tale. A minor le Carré, but read by a master.
