About the Author:

Craig Thomas is married and lives with his wife and two tortoiseshell cats in Staffordshire. His interests include cricket, gardening and music, especially classical music and jazz. He is also interested in philosophy and political theory (his collection of essays, 'There to Here', is published by Fontana Press).

From AudioFile:

British secret agent Philip Cass learns that the leading candidate to become the next Prime Minister of India has built his family fortune by smuggling drugs. Cass is now in deep trouble--deeper than stumbling into a nest of angry cobras. Thorne's presentation is top drawer with a clear, crisp delivery, excellent dialects and well-conceived male and female voices. His timing and phrasing are wonderful, frequently amplified by well-placed sighs, chuckles and other touches to enhance the listener's sense for the circumstances. The best part of this work may be in Thorne's strong narration of the adventure passages, with speech patterns matched to the action. This is an excellent example of how an author's good work, coupled with a superior audio production, maximize the entertainment experience. T.J.M.
