A deadly cocktail of prions and DNA could kill all the African-Americans and Jews in the U.S. Chris "Lucky" Cunningham and Stacy Richardson are out to stop the madmen. From Washington, D.C., to Texas to L.A., they chase after white supremacists, as well as members of the U.S. military and scientists trying to forestall a tragedy. Cannell is so wrapped up in his plot that he loses touch with its tension. The narrative is delivered smoothly, but the dialogue is often stilted or read word by word. Furthermore, when the narration becomes full of technical jargon, Cannell reads as though sounding out all the words. Although the mix of themes and characters is too much, Cannell manages to captivate with the action. M.B.K. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
