Holter Graham's authoritative, masculine tenor adds credence to this complex story of espionage, duplicity, and assassination. Former Senator Michael Patrick Santini is forced from his Wall Street firm back to Washington, DC, when the Secretary of Defense is assassinated and the United States teeters on the brink of war. Graham seamlessly switches between Russian, Chinese, Israeli, and Middle Eastern accents, defining characters with tonal nuances, speech peculiarities, and sometimes deliberate impediments. His characterization of White House infighting and Cabinet intrigue is realistic and repulsive. Graham's depiction of events makes the story sound as if it's "ripped from the pages of today's headlines." This is a well-characterized, well-developed thriller.
