    "Gripping story"

    I like most Francis Durbridge stories, but I particularly enjoyed this one. It's narrated from a 1st person perspective of the hero, Guy Foster. Unlike many of Durbridge's other books, we meet the key protagonists quite quickly, but it is not obvious for most of the novel who is on the side of good and bad. Even our hero's relationship with the police is ambiguous for a lot of the novel. Greg Wise's reading is excellent and manages to bring all the characters alive through judicious use of different tone and accents.
