    Foster’s dramatic skill is well known in London’s West End theatres, so perhaps it wasn’t so surprising when he was hired by an American newspaper publisher to cover the trial of Yordan Delchev for treason. Accused of membership in the sinister Officer Corps Brotherhood and of masterminding a plot to assassinate his country’s leader, Delchev may in fact be a pawn and his trial all show.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sibley, the drunken newspaper reporter who is indiscreet. I like his character VERY much. One of Eric Ambler's best bit characters.


    What does Tim Bentinck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, where Foster is discussing his wife's death.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
