is an impressive series. Drummond is the kind of character one remembers
long after the last page is turned. This episode is full of suspects,

audio version is read by two actors. Lead narrator is actor John
Rubinstein, already a veteran to the Haig series, having narrated
Secret Sanction, Moral Allies and The Kingmaker.
Actor Michael Emerson reads the part of the killer, and he does
a good job; especially chilling is the deep, mechanical voice.
