When Jack Valentine agrees to help a friend rescue his daughter from a South American drug dealer, he’s quickly thrust back into the covert life. Narrator Sean Barrett is exceptional as he presents Jack, a Scotsman, along with characters of many other nationalities. As Valentine covers several countries on his quest, Creed peppers the novel with famous art, artists, and folklore surrounding the Day of the Dead. Barrett adds to the pleasure with his gorgeous or grotesque delivery, depending on the situation. In addition to the story’s violence, characters reflect on aging and the end of life, adding to the dark tone of the story. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
