This novel about Harry Strand, a former spy trying to elude a vengeful criminal, moves at a slow pace. Instead of relying on cliff-hangers in every chapter, David Lindsey builds tension through painstaking detail as he follows Strand's methodical plan--and a loose end that could unravel it. Paul Hecht's low-key reading--almost as methodical as Strand's plotting--complements the tone of the novel, conveying both the danger the protagonists face and the cool professionalism with which they handle it. Although some descriptive passages could have been cut to improve the flow of the reading, this unabridged thriller is effective at full length.
