The World of Tim Frazer was the longestrunning BBC serial of the early Sixties, and one of the most successful. The popularity of these TV programs inspired Francis Durbridge to write several novels featuring the easygoing engineerturnedspy Tim Frazer. In this one, read by Buffy and Little Britain star Anthony Head, Frazer becomes involved in another difficult and dangerous case.

What sinister implications lie behind an innocent bulb catalog? What is the mystery of the metronome carried by the dead man? It is only Frazers second assignment—is it going to be his last? From the creator of popular radio detective Paul Temple comes this exciting adventure featuring undercover agent Tim Frazer, narrated by Anthony Head.
