The former pupils of Glasgow's St. Michael's are invited to a free reunion at classmate Gavin Hutchinson's resort on a disused oil platform. Trouble begins immediately and escalates when terrorists raid the isolated hotel. Narrator Kenny Blyth is terrific as he lends believability to a wide range of characters and situations that ranges from graphic violence to dark comedy and poignancy as old scores are settled. Blyth gives authenticity to farce, irony, and one-liners. Particularly entertaining is the comparison of TV and movie crime with real crime. In addition to mystery buffs, those who enjoy superior writing and narration are in for a unique experience. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
