In a story so full of plot twists, intrigue, danger, and violent death as to top any bestseller list, O’Donnell recounts the true story of a U.S. mission to sabotage a critical Nazi supply route in the Italian Alps. Dennis Boutsikaris presents the journalistic account in the way it was written—as a James Bond thriller. His rapid-fire delivery of military operations alternates with a languid presentation of the portions of the story relating to “the Countess,” a Mata Hari-esque real-life distraction to mission leader Stephen Hall. The story is so gripping and the delivery so compelling that only lines such as “recalling the event some 60 years later . . .” serve to remind the listener that the story actually happened. R.L.L.
