A horrific series of IRA bombings in London sets up this revenge story in which a highly trained Vietnamese assassin seeks justice for the loss of his wife and daughter. Narrator Russell Boulter deftly navigates numerous accents as the patient reluctant hero, Nguyen Ngoc Minh, plies his skills in a series of bloody attacks. He hopes to force politicians to crack down on the more militant elements of the cause. Boulter's deliberate pacing and flawless timing heighten the emotional confrontations, graphic sex, tense showdowns, and heartbreaking conclusion. Fans of thrillers on both sides of the Pond will find entertainment and enlightenment in this wise assassin. R.O. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
