Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This first of a series of classic pulp thrillers about a British officer, post WWI, seeking adventure and battling master criminals, is melodramatic fun for those with a taste for the period. As the accompanying booklet notes, it’s ‘James Bond written by P. G. Wodehouse.’ Roy McMillan’s narration makes the book into a smoothly entertaining ‘movie of the mind.’ He has a pleasantly deep, engaging voice, which he varies easily for different characters, only occasionally wandering into exaggeration or caricature. His accents are mostly good, especially the sometimes difficult American, and his pacing keeps the story flowing smoothly. His real skill is that one doesn’t even notice his talent and professionalism but simply absorbs the story with pleasure.” AudioFile
