What should one call the cassette version of a page-turner? A side-spinner? Anyway, The Statement qualifies for the appropriate title. It's a satirical thriller about an aged Nazi, alternately threatened and protected by various interests because of his Holocaust depredations. British actor Andrew Sachs, more at home with farce than suspense, gives faint value to the author's expert orchestration of tension and sometimes even misreads a line. Nonetheless, Moore's vitality and craftsmanship carry the day, giving the listener a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 97]
