I've asked several people and no one had heard it before.
I was wondering if it is ok to use the phrase in creative writing (I'm writing a story in which I want to use it).
Thank you for help.

Please don't keep the name of your dictionary a secret. I would like to verify that what you report is correct. I find it hard to believe that it wasn't actually "the tone of his voice ...".
The dictionary is a multimedia Oxford dictionary on a CD which I got from a friend of mine. I'll try to find the original CD and will hopefully be able to give you more information.
I was going to use the same verb to say that someone's face "brooks no argument" - in other words - judging by their face expression, they won't listen to any other opinion. I'd like to use it to describe the person's character, not their behaviour in that particular situation. I can't think of any other way of saying it.
Anyway, thank you for your help!
