It's 1999, and Russia's president has suddenly died. When the fascist, racist plan of a right-wing leader poised to take over the government comes to the attention of British and U.S. intelligence, a covert group uses the talents of former U.S. spy Jason Monk to stop it. Stephen Lang gives full measure in his performance of this taut thriller. His skill at creating and sustaining vocal personalities and adding the right emotional intonations enhances the story and the suspense. The abridgment is smooth, with no obvious omissions, and musical bridges enhance the mood. The result is absorbing audio. M.A.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 97]
