Rupert Degas channels the characters in this historical mystery series featuring Australian Roland Sinclair, an artist and gentleman who has a penchant for scandal. Roland and his three co-patriot sidekicks find themselves in 1935 Shanghai, where trouble abounds. Crime, gambling, drugs, and international politics are wrapped into this clever mystery. Degas creates fully formed vocal portraits of each of the characters, even small players. The narrative style, which Golden Age mystery listeners will recognize--think Sayres, Christie, Allingham-- makes for dazzling listening. Degas never misses any of the wry underlying humor, literary references, or colorful details. Brilliant entertainment by Degas, who was just celebrated as an AUDIOFILE Golden Voice. R.F.W.
