Doc Adams becomes a self-styled investigator in this mystery, which leads him from a murder on Billingsgate Shoal to an arms-smuggling ring. Christopher Lane's unceremonious voice duplicates the persona of Dr. Adams's cool, calculated personality as he stumbles upon the pieces of this puzzling tale. Lane collects the additional characters we meet, wife Mary and sons, missing people rediscovered, and possible suspects, giving each voice a refined contrast. His storytelling supports the listener throughout this fast-moving novel.
