In this spy novel intelligence agents from several countries vie to lay their hands on the contents of a Nazi chest, which has lain for some time in a lake. The story slightly predates the days of explicit description and seems a little tame by 1990's standards. The tape quality and clarity of the recording are excellent. While the cross-gender differentiation is good, the male character differentiation is only fair. The British Pacey's attempts to employ an American accent are somewhat tedious. This is particularly bothersome in the character of the New York-based publishing executive. Overall, however, the performance is very good. J.D.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 92]
