Mystery & Suspense • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Geologist Phillip Mercer, hero of two previous Du Brul thrillers, returns this time to search for a diamond mine in an underdeveloped African country. Mercer's odyssey plays out much like an Indiana Jones adventure and is more exciting to hear than to read (the reviewer tried both.) Charles's narration is mostly first rate, and his pacing is perfect. The listener will be captivated as Mercer gets out of one jam only to find himself in another. However, Charles's character accents are sometimes laughable. The villain sounds more like Bella Lugosi's Count Dracula than an Italian aristocrat. Still, Charles's overall reading is a gem.
