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.
The incorrigible British agent Charlie Muffin is back, but no James Bond is he. It's the late 1980s, and the Soviet Union is beginning to crumble. Moscow, intending to beat the U.S. Star Wars program, schemes to gain vital intelligence. Muffin, whose been demoted by his British superiors, inadvertently walks into the thick of things. Hayward Morse has a pleasant voice; he's great when playing a cultured Briton and credible when performing several Russian characters. However, he's miscast as Charlie, who is as far from proper, as you can imagine. Still, Morse's reading and Freemantle's writing bring back memories.
