The evil in the latest thriller by this lawer-turned-novelist is not in the listening, but in the plotting. Jack Swyteck is back to defend a woman accused of killing her husband, a captain at the U.S. naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The first twist is that the woman's deaf adopted son, who was in the next room during the murder, may be Swyteck's offspring. The second is that one of Castro's soldiers, who was spying on the base, may be the only witness to the murder. Imagine bringing a Cuban soldier to Miami to testify. Nick Sullivan is especially believable when he performs Latin characters. His accents are near perfect, and his clear voice keeps the listener on the edge. A.L.H.
