Lucas Davenport, who is with the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in Michigan, teams up with Nadya, a Russian policewoman and intelligence agent, to determine who killed the Russian Rodion Oleshev. But the clues don't add up, and more people end up dead, so Nadya and Lucas must determine who is shooting fifty-year-old bullets and what the KGB has to do with it all. Eric Conger manages to keep all the characters straight as he weaves between Russians and Michiganders and copes with the disjointed abridgment of Sandford's tightly woven plot. Sound effects highlight the murders and shoot-outs, adding tension to the taut story line. Conger's emotional distance during the narration adds tension when the clues point in contradictory directions. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
