About the Author:

Geoffrey Archer's gripping thrillers are inspired by a deep knowledge of international intrigue gathered during more than 25 years of reporting for ITV's News at Ten. The Burma Legacy is the third novel featuring MI6 agent Sam Packer, who first appeared in Fire Hawk and The Lucifer Network. It follows his other international bestsellers: Java Spider, Scorpion Trail, Eagle Trap, Shadow Hunter and Sky Dancer.

From AudioFile:

Sam Packer is working undercover for the Intelligence Service when he discovers that biological weapons have been smuggled out of Iraq for a planned explosion overseas. Moments after learning this, his cover is blown. Christian Rodska has a nuanced voice that is well suited to individualizing the many voices and accents in the story. He uses his voice like a well-tuned instrument, heightening the effect of the words. Rodska is particularly good at making the characters' fear so palpable that it can make a listener nervous. A nail-biting listen. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
