Mystery & Suspense • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Robin Sachs’s upper-crust British accent works perfectly for Max Chadwick of the Ministry of Information in Malta during WWII as he whitewashes the war for the local community—native residents and high-ranking Brits. His job turns deadly when he encounters a series of murders of Maltese women that are covered up by British authorities. Sachs’s deadpan delivery of the villain’s thoughts makes his inventory of rape and murder more chilling and is a sharp contrast from the droll patter of the Brits playing at war and infidelity. Sachs’s vocal transformations from the upright Chadwick and his circle to the perverse mind and actions of the killer are excellent, as is his narration of the German air attacks that endanger Chadwick’s search for justice.
