Another rock 'em, sock 'em, take-no-prisoners thriller starring John Deal, surely the most beleaguered and violence-prone real estate developer in the history of the genre. This time Deal is summoned to Key West to discuss developing a historic parcel that only he has the sensitivity to handle, according to the rich and sinister mogul behind the project. Deal's lost high school love, now a sexy chanteuse, entirely too coincidentally gets into the mix almost at once, along with a lot of explosions, a murder or two, some corrupt cops, and a shipment of incredibly valuable Haut Brion wine, vintage 1929. Scott Brick provides just about exactly the gravelly voiced gravitas all this deserves. Fans should be delighted. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
