Good News, Bad News... a secret agent is trained to try to think of every possible outcome and eventuality. Who could have guessed, though, that a bureaucratic error would send two men to the same 'cover' job, working in a shabby photo-processing booth, where each must keep his real identity secret from the other, while awaiting orders. Or that those orders would be to assassinate... each other.
Thrown together by this apparently ghastly mistake, Charlie and George decide to go on the run together. In the whole world, the only people they can trust are each other. Or can they?

The whole affair is just a bit too restrained. I assume this was to make the humor seem drolll but it falls flat. There is no hook to care about the characters and the narration (in the text) is too remote. The narrator is very listenable, but does not encourage excitement.
Down-to-earth characters that sound like people we all know.
Charlie, because he's a flawed, ordinary-guy hero.
His voice matches the real-life nature of the story.
Real-life spys, just like you and me!
