Narrator James Cameron Stewart delivers a tongue-in-cheek WWII adventure featuring British spy Basil St. Florian. Listeners meet the real-life code breaker Alan Turing and learn that St. Florian must locate a rare 1789 manuscript called "A Path to Jesus" to crack a code and possibly end the war. Stewart's approach is laugh-out-loud funny as St. Florian gets himself into and out of the fortified French museum that holds the manuscript. Countless outstanding European accents create atmosphere, with those of the often bumbling Nazis being the standouts. Well-presented cameo appearances by Winston Churchill and Vivien Leigh add to the verisimilitude of the time period. Listeners will enjoy a wry tale that takes its history seriously but never solemnly. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
