Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by James Bryce

Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Supt. Colin Thane leaves the environs of Glasgow to investigate arson at a whisky warehouse in the Highlands. Family intrigue, more dead bodies, and a crime close to home result in a trying time for Thane and his fellow investigators. The atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands and the fragrance of single-malt scotch seem to waft around the listener as James Bryce's versatility imbues each character with a vivid personality. Thane is often serious and dry; and the next moment his young assistant's grace and enthusiasm shine through. Thane's dour veteran assistant is gruff without becoming a caricature. Bryce demonstrates a range of Scottish accents, demonstrating the comments of those in the story from Glasgow about thick Highland accents, but all are consistently, reliably clear. Experiencing this production is not quite as good as a trip along the Malt Whiskey trail, but it comes close. M.A.M.
