Annique Villiers holds the plans to Napoleon’s invasion of England. The British order their operative, Robert Grey, to retrieve the plans by any means. An unlikely romance develops as these rival spies attempt to outwit each other. Kirsten Potter’s understated French accent evokes Annique’s Gallic insouciance and provides deadpan humor for her miraculous escapes. The proper British accent she gives Grey suggests devilish humor and stony determination. Minor characters have equally memorable voices. Potter delivers both banter and perilous situations with impeccable timing. Whether the characters face French prisons or rogue assassins, Potter’s reading strengthens the story’s well-wrought tension. Let’s hope Potter and Bourne team up again. C.A.
