With the end of the Cold War, many secrets and some truly amazing stories are coming out. One of these stories concerns the use of submarines by the United States to gather intelligence from the Soviets. These must be heard to be believed, for no one could have created stories such as these. Wilson's reading is, overall, adequate. His baritone reminded this reviewer of Dick Estell's. Wilson's pacing and intonation are good, and he is never monotonous. However, it would have been nice if he had been given training in pronouncing Russian words. His consistent mispronunciations may grate on some. Still, this work is hard to let go. The interview with the author at the conclusion is enlightening.
