Aside from slight word usage and Ric Jerrom's British accent, there's little difference between this explosive novel and one written by American authors like Tom Clancy. You might even say this British writer moves things along faster. Nick Stone, a British Intelligence operative and his friend, Kev Brown, foil an attempted bombing by remote control; later Stone stumbles into the aftermath of the murder of Brown and most of Brown's family. Jerrom's cockney at first gets in the way, but his crisp businesslike reading soon has one concentrating on the plot. Jerrom's a credible agent and a whiny 8-year-old. His only failing is an occasional pause in the middle of a sentence. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
