From the first words, the first scene, narrator Antony Ferguson delivers an intense Victorian spy thriller that is interspersed with swaths of dialogue and internal discourse. Clyde Barker and Thomas Llewelyn are a formidable team of private inquiry agents hired to deliver a mysterious package to Calais. Unknown foreign agents will murder and maim to abscond with the heavy parcel. Ferguson imbues Agent Barker with a smooth Scots accent, which contrasts with Llewelyn's lilting Welsh tones. Ferguson also produces a mix of high- and low-class British accents, audibly contrasting them with the accents of Italy, France, Germany, and Austria. Barker and Llewelyn use their considerable talents and wits to foil foreign agents and gain Scotland Yard's respect. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
