Duration: 5 hours 32 minutes

"They don't write 'em like this anymore...[London's] considerable storytelling skills engage listeners who might not otherwise be drawn to this subject. Brian Emerson contributes a well-paced reading and an authentic range of voices. His David Grief is just right: self-assured and always in control."-AudioFile
