Publisher's Summary

His holiday with his family has just begun, but a phone call sends Martin Beck packing off to Budapest, where a boorish journalist has vanished without a trace. With the aid of the coolly efficient local police, who do business while soaking at the public baths, Beck must troll about in the Eastern Europe underworld for a man nobody knows - while he is at the risk of vanishing along with his quarry.

The Man Who Went Up in Smoke gives us the dedicated Beck at his most engaging: indulging in the sumptuous Hungarian cuisine, longing for a decent cigarette, and evading a predatory nymphet, even as he pursues a case whose international boundaries grow with every new clue.

    "Can't stand the narrator"
    What would have made The Man Who Went Up in Smoke better?

    Anybody else as the narrator


    Would you recommend The Man Who Went Up in Smoke to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not with this narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator 's accent seemed so contrived with the last syllable of most words being artificially lenthened


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The actual book is Ok this audiobook it let down by the abysmal narration


    Any additional comments?

    I am not going to buy any more audiobooks narrated by Mr Weiner
