Lionel Davidson was born in 1922 in Hull, Yorkshire. He left school early and worked as a reporter before serving in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. His first novel, The Night of Wenceslas, was published in 1960 to great critical acclaim and drew comparisons to Graham Greene and John le Carré. It was followed by The Rose of Tibet (1962), A Long Way to Shiloh (1966), The Chelsea Murders (1978) and Kolymsky Heights (1994). He was thrice the recipient of the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger Award and, in 2001, was awarded the CWA's Cartier Diamond Dagger lifetime achievement award. He died in 2009.From AudioFile:
This spellbinding thriller centers around a top-secret research camp in northern Siberia. The center's director sends for the only man who can safely preserve a Russian discovery for the benefit of mankind rather than allow it to be put to evil purposes. Bikel superbly meets the challenge of narrating dialogue in diverse accents. He captures the listener's imagination with his every word. As Bikel makes the scenes and characters vivid, the listener anxiously anticipates the outcome of each escapade. B.J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
