Audible Editor Reviews

Ex-cat-burglar John Mannering is ready to settle down as a clean-living antiques dealer, but suddenly finds himself confronted by his "black past" in this classic crime mystery from the eponymous John Creasey. Caught in the path of a murderous antique smuggler, Mannering is forced to reprise his criminal alter ego - safe-cracking jewel thief, the Baron. Calling on his extensive body of work in British television, performer Philip Bird captures the typically dry English wit of these upper-crust criminals. The Coronation Street actor demonstrates a masterful knack for role-playing as he doles out quick-clipped banter between the colorful characters, skillfully imbuing each with a unique voice.
