The most recent in the list of thrillers featuring Butch Karp and his wife, Marlene Ciampi, involves a savage assault and political hanky-panky, along with a terrorist plot thrown in for good measure. For newcomers, the author spends many pages catching up by summarizing past events. For those familiar with the series this could be tedious. However, Richard Ferrone reads with authority, portraying all the characters in a consistent and realistic style. His accents--Russian, Arabic, African-American--are believable as are his portrayals of women and children. A fine performance, this will maintain the interest of even the most knowledgeable Tanenbaum fans. S.S.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
