Mystery & Suspense • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1965

This novel won the Edgar Award in 1966, long enough ago that the villains are Nazis and the beautiful girl, Inga, grew up in Hitler’s bunker. Sound dated? Not really. Compromised women are intoxicating in any era. Nor can our agent, Quiller, forgive Zossen. He's the SS officer, “round-shouldered like his fuehrer,” who ordered 300 Jews machine-gunned. Their request for time to pray was denied. Zossen would have been late for luncheon. Simon Prebble, one of this magazine's Golden Voices, doesn't just play the characters, he plays the orchestra as well, letting the percussion, or the violins, into his voice as the mood demands. And yes, it <> a movie with the same title, starring George Segal. B.H.C. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
