Terrorists threaten to cause earthquakes throughout California if their demands aren't met in this agreeable, though only mildly engaging, story. The fact that the novel is at least a hundred pages (or, in this case, two cassettes) too long is mitigated by Alexander Adams's clean, articulate reading, which is well paced and laced with thoughtful vocal characterizations. Can FBI agent Judy Maddox save the day before San Francisco falls into the sea? In the Books on Tape version you'll get to hear a few extras, including the author's afterword and jacket notes, which are excised from this Random House retail version.
