The setting of Griffin's latest series about men at war is a new perspective on the WWII years: the OSS in neutral Argentina. Hill does a wonderful job with the international cast of characters, offering splendid Texan, German and Spanish dialects. He presents each with clear distinction while appropriately adding a sigh here, a sniff there, and other audio touches to amplify readers' overall enjoyment of this fine work. An echo effect, that distinguishes thoughts from dialogue, works very well, although using the technique for phone conversations is less successful. Overall, Griffin's marvelous story is significantly enriched by Hill's superb reading. T.J.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
