The narrator does such a good job of emphasis in the speech patterns of the characters--really makes them come alive. He puts stress where I did in my head while reading the book for the first time. In short, he reads the book aloud very like the way I imagined it ought to sound.
Sibley, the drunken newspaper reporter who is indiscreet. I like his character VERY much. One of Eric Ambler's best bit characters.
Again, aside from doing female voices, he's got a distinct voice for each character in the book--if you lost your place, you'd probably know which character was speaking just from his voice.
Yes, where Foster is discussing his wife's death.
Judgment on Deltchev, along w/The Schirmer Interitance & The Night Comers, are 3 of my all-time favorite Ambler novels, and I like almost everything he wrote. Deltchev & Schirmer were his first post-war novels & really brought him back, and signaled that he WAS back, as a mystery/spy writer after WWII.
