Thomas Bolden, now Wall Street financier, once a street-smart kid, is soon to be engaged. When he and girlfriend are mugged, he chases the thugs and discovers the attack was a ruse to kidnap him. David Aaron Baker delivers a tightly paced action-packed story in even, measured tones that ratchet up the tension. He characterizes crooked cops and diabolical politicians masquerading as patriots with appropriate voices. Wolf, a ruthless mercenary skilled at torture, is portrayed with menace as he works on Bolden to extract information and leave his "mark" on him. The story is complicated and requires close attention, but it's worth the effort. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
