9780099517702: Charlie Muffin

Charlie Muffin is an oddity - an over-tired, over-drawn, over-hung, middle-aged anachronism. To himself, a survivor. To others, an irritant. To the army colonel, Charlie, with his crumpled suits and leaking shoes, is the final inherited embarrassment from a disgraced department he is committed to revitalise. Who better, then, to sacrifice in the capture of a KGB general who is masterminding the Soviet Union's European spy net from behind the counter of his London wine importers business? So upon one man settle the hopes of East and West. All Charlie hopes to do is survive. On his own terms, of course.

About the Author:

Brian Freemantle [b. 1936] is one of Britain's most acclaimed authors of spy fiction. His novels have sold over ten million copies worldwide. Born in Southampton, Freemantle entered his career as a journalist, and began writing espionage thrillers in the late 1960s. Charlie M (1977) introduced the world to Charlie Muffin and won Freemantle international recognition—he would go on to publish fourteen titles in the series. 

Freemantle has written dozens of other novels, including two featuring Sebastian Holmes, an illegitimate son of Sherlock Holmes, and the Cowley and Danilov series, about an American FBI agent and a Russian militia detective who work together to comabt organized crime in the post-Cold War world. Freemantle lives and works in London, England.

From AudioFile:

Charlie Muffin, an endearing spy, irritates his new boss and co-workers because of his appearance and age, but that doesn't stop them from taking the credit for his accomplishments. But Charlie perseveres and proves to be right over and over again in this story of the capture of a KGB general who is running a spy network in England. Hayward Morse ably creates voices for each of the many characters, using a variety of convincing accents, though once in a while he doesn't shift to the correct voice. He is especially effective in his timing and makes the humor of certain situations evident. Through all the plot twists, there is never any hint of the surprising outcome.
