Paul Torday hooks a winner, using his love of fishing to cast a witty look at modern-day politics through a wickedly satirical story of love, faith, and salmon fishing in the desert. Recorded Books brings the story to life in spite of the challenge of telling a story entirely through memos, diaries, emails, news reports, and court depositions. A full cast portrays the varied characters. John Sessions, especially, does well as the Milquetoast Dr. Alfred Jones of Britain's National Centre for Fisheries Excellence. This underachieving government scientist, married to an overachieving economist, finds his voice and passion in his search for a way to bring salmon to the desert wadis of Yemen.
