by | Read by Robert Whitfield [Simon Vance]

Mystery & Suspense • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1955

At the first words of this production, listeners can immediately imagine every James Bond movie they ever saw. Robert Whitfield sounds like all the characters rolled into one, but particularly Bernard Lee, who played the British mastermind “M.” Whitfield’s rendition of the villain Hugo Drax is also inspired in its earthy blusterings. The book has some similarities with the spectacular 1979 Roger Moore movie but stands on its own because of Whitfield’s effortless movements among the characters and plot, which has to do with a secret missile attack intended for London.
