Narrator Frank Grimes brings to life the engaging story of a romantic, somewhat alcoholic Irish engineer who lends his skills to the British war effort. In this third Jack McNulty novel, Grimes is convincingly hopeful when the protagonist feels so; perhaps even more importantly, his delivery of McNulty's frequent cynicism and discontent is sure to stay with listeners. The emotions related through Grimes's Irish lilt leave little room for disbelief; in fact, it's not difficult for one to simply accept that this is Grimes's own story. This intimacy gives listeners the sense of trailing McNulty through the painful wreckage of his life, and this, more than anything else, is Grimes's most important accomplishment.
