The first in a series of original Bernice Summerfield audio plays, this story sees the wonderful Lisa Bowerman yet again breathing life into the role. She is joined by a small cast in a suitably claustrophobic story, by the end of which you will know the secret of Cassandra.
Holidaying on a world where a major war is going on may not seem sensible, and indeed Bernice will have several well chosen words with her travel agent after the story is over, Benny finds herself temporarily shipwrecked before being picked up by the captain of the Cassandra, over the vociferous objections of General Brennan, who has hired the Cassandra.
Secrets? Well, who hasn't got them? Certainly not any of the characters in this story!
My main problem is the start - the holiday on the warring planet and shipwrecked bit. After that, the story works well, although some of the characters do seem to behave in an odd way - no doubt due to the stresses of war.
A good use of 70 minutes of your time.
