Richard Hanney is an ordinary man, drawn into mysteries he does not understand, and no one is willing to help him. In these 2 suspense novels written by the father of the modern spy thriller, Hanney must outwit villains in unnerving situations that lay bare the thin veneer separating civilized man from the barbarian.

Very poor sound quality

1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 06-10-07

The sound quality of this recording is so bad it is unlistenable. The books are among my childhood favourites (from my grandfather's bookshelves). But I can't listen to this - it has been a total waste of money and I am extremely disappointed. As a new user I did not notice that it only rated a maximum of 2 for sound quality until after purchase, but even that is extremely generous.
