Erik Singer assumes the persona of Cotton Malone, former operative for the U.S. State Department, with a crisp narration. He depicts the retiree, now a rare books dealer, without any hint of his former profession. However, when Malone receives an anonymous email and learns his teenaged son has been taken hostage from his ex-wife's home, his adventures begins anew. The ransom: he must locate the long lost Library of Alexandria, or his son will be dismembered, one piece at a time. Singer uses a versatile talent and vocal range to skillfully portray American and Middle Eastern accents as his quest leads to the highest levels of the U.S. Government. Singer captures the rising tension and tight pacing with a matching cadence that keeps listeners involved. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
