We urgently need an audiobook equivalent of the term "page-turner" because this is one: a neatly constructed, intelligent entertainment that keeps the reader/listener eager to discover what happens next. Buck Schirner guides us ably through the central character's world-hopping efforts to piece together a complex puzzle of conspiracy and murder. He maintains good tone and pacing throughout, and does a nice job with numerous cameo characters of both sexes and a variety of accents. Through it all, he's personally unobtrusive. At the end, one remembers the story, not the reader. In this reviewer's experience, this is the first Brilliance production that can be classed without reservation alongside the best in audiobooks.
