Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Scott Brick

Mystery & Suspense • 19.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Secret Honor is the third book in W.E.B. Griffin's series about life, love, and intrigue in neutral Argentina during WWII. Reader Scott Brick does a wonderful job presenting the fascinating characters and circumstances. Complex German and Argentinean names for people and places roll off of his tongue. Conversations and narrative sections are delivered with smooth authenticity. Much of the interaction and banter between rival intelligence officers is written with satirical flare. Brick adds just the right lilt and cadence to his delivery, leaving listeners feeling as if they were eavesdropping at a nearby table in some dark bar. However, there is one minor difficulty: Griffin uses the thoughts of major characters to help tell his story. In print, these words are italicized to differentiate their purpose. It's tough to vocalize italics, so some important material is confusing. But Brick's sterling effort prevails. T.J.M.
