A journalist finds himself drawn into the labyrinth of Soviet history while investigating the disappearance of an old flame's father. Sutherland's narrative is a pleasure to hear in and of itself. His smooth, subtle voice projects regret, longing and suspense, moving naturally from whisper to sigh to panicked ramble. His characterizations of intoxicated speech are quite convincing, his foreign accents less so. The abridgment, written by the author, is smooth and logical though the editing breaks at the ends of sides are not. E.S.B.
