Writer Brian Haig and narrator L.J. Ganser are a tough act to follow. Haig, a career soldier and son of former Army General and Secretary of State Al Haig, has written a delightfully funny thriller that’s comedic and insightful. His character, Sean Drummond, is an Army spook and lawyer on loan to the CIA who impersonates an FBI agent. Called to the scene when a Defense Department official is murdered, Drummond teams up with a gorgeous female investigator on a mission to Iraq. Along the way, the reader gets a pretty accurate education about the differences between the factions in that country. Haig’s hero is the king of one-liners, and Ganser milks every line. Expect to chuckle with one line and roar with the next. Ganser gives Drummond an impish character and sardonic voice that has the listener cheering. There’s no end to the surprises writer and reader deliver. You’ll be delighted by the utter nonsense and treachery. A.L.H.
