Dylan Baker characterizes a different kind of plumber in this account of duplicity, mayhem, and homicide. Baker's characterization is chilling as the hit man cunningly performs "wet work" for a top-ranking government agency to stop information leaks. Also involved is disgraced journalist Tom Valle, recently convicted of plagiarism, who is hot on the trail of the biggest news story of his career--one that will reclaim his reputation. Baker's tense and believable depictions take the listener from California to a remote cabin and then to confinement in a high-level psychiatric hospital. However, excellent narration can't salvage the story's illogical conspiracy theories or disappointing ending. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
