The wife of murdered journalist Daniel Pearl recounts his kidnapping in early 2002 and the attempt to find him. This book briefly discuses Pearl's life, but mostly we learn about his time in Pakistan shortly before his kidnapping and the efforts by his wife and others to rescue him from terrorists. It's a dramatic story, made more so by the fact that it's true. Mariane Pearle's French accent is strong, and at times she is not perfectly clear. Her emotion, however, is strongly and clearly communicated. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
