Listeners will have trouble separating fact from fiction in this well-researched novel, which depicts the relationship between the opium and heroin trade, Iranian terrorists, and the production of nuclear weapons. Afghanistan, Germany, London, Istanbul, and Amsterdam are the settings for this exciting but frightening story. Scott Brick's performance is right on target, from the detailed descriptions of drug manufacturing and terrorist plots to the special operations action. A multitude of international voices do not present any difficulty as he moves from one foreign accent to another. Vocal modulation and varied rhythms and tempos convey both the action and the rich descriptions. The story will keep listeners engaged as they try to distinguish the real from the made-up. S.S.R.
